Located in the Garfield Park neighborhood, near the intersection of Madison Street and California Avenue, the 700-seat Garfield opened in 1909, and may have been a vaudeville house in its early years prior to switching over to movies. Seating was later reduced to 450.
The Garfield closed by about 1950, due to both competetion from television as well as the beginning of the decline of the Garfield Park neighborhood. The theater has since been torn down and the site is now a parking lot.
A smaller theater of the same name, located at Halsted and 55th Streets, near Garfield Boulevard in the New City neighborhood, was long ago closed and demolished.
