Any photos of this “Unique” theatre?

For the record there is a movie theatre in the lower level of the Harold Washington Library. They often ran free films for the public during Summer months. Marx Bros. films, etc. Sometimes lectures with films.

I think the back of the old Binyon’s restaurant on Plymouth court faces the park. Now renovated with a rooftop cafe I beleive.

Judging from the park’s location, the original address would be 376 S State.

So I’m guessing Jazz Age Chicago was off by one digit.

I offten wondered what was on that spot, a lot of people use that CTA station i think the park is dedacated to the Pritzer famley.
It would be nice to see aomething marking the face that the for mentioned theatres were on this spot.

Jazz Age Chicago’s early theatres index shows this at 276 S State; however, that’s on the northeast corner of State and Jackson, which doesn’t jibe with the description. Their description of the theatre, however, does agree with the description here.
