They’ll say that if it was majorly remodeled, though. In the aerial view, it’s certainly theater-shaped.

Can you be sure it’s not just heavily remodeled?

There is currently a Royal Savings Bank at this address, in a more recent (1960s?) structure.

In the book “IMAGES of AMERICA- CHICAGO’S SOUTHEAST SIDE” by Rod Sellers, there is a nice pic of the East Side theatre on page 34. Nice shot of the marquee;“THE OUTLAW” with Jane Russell is playing along with a second feature. The year is 1950. The EastSide theatre was one of the first theatres to convert to “talkies” in the late 20s. Also on page 34, a photo of the Gayety; on page 33 is a nice shot of the Commercial theatre(marquee and entrance).According to the text, at one time 17 theatres were operating on the Southeast side!
