The Argmore Theatre was opened in 1913, and two years later, was acquired from its original independent operator by the Alfred Hamburger circuit. It was located in the Edgewater neighborhood, near the intersection of W. Argyle Street and N. Kenmore Avenue, hence the theatre’s name.
In 1922, the Gumbiner Brothers took over operation of the Argmore Theatre. Acquired by the Essaness circuit on October 7, 1933, it continued to be operated by that chain until closing in the early-1950’s.
The former theatre building was later was converted over to retail use. It currently functions as a liquor store with the auditorium used for storage.
