The 20th Century Theatre opened in 1913 in the Lawndale neighborhood on Roosevelt Road (then still called 12th Street) near Central Park Avenue. It was across the street from the Central Park Theatre, which opened in 1917 and is considered to be the Balaban & Katz chain’s first true “movie palace”.
In its final years in operation, the 20th Century Theatre was part of the Cooper-Kirsch Theaters chain and the Allied circuit. The theater closed in 1958 and was converted into retail use. It has since been demolished.
