The Mercury Theater opened in the late-1940’s. By the late-1950’s, it was acquired by the Balaban & Katz chain. In the 1970’s, the Mercury Theater was part of the Plitt Theatres chain. In the early-1980’s, the Mercury Theater was twinned.
In 1988, the Mercury Theater was closed by Cineplex-Odeon, and was demolished. One of its last bookings was the Michael Douglas thriller “Fatal Attraction”. The nearby Midwest Bank had the words “Goodbye Mercury” displayed on its signage at the time of the theater’s demolition.
A strip mall now sits on the site of the Mercury Theater.
