This small Oak Park movie house opened in 1913, the same year as its three other movie houses (the Oak Park-later called the Lamar Theater, the Southern Theater and the Playhouse Theater). It was located on Harrison Street, near Gunderson Avenue.
The Elmwood Theater operated until the early-1950’s, when the property was acquired (along with many of its neighbors)to make way for the Congress Expressway (renamed the Dwight D. Eisenhower Expressway in 1964). The theater was demolished about 1954.
