Opened in 1912, the Drexel Theater was located in the Woodlawn neighborhood, on 63rd Street at the intersection of Drexel Avenue. It sat near the larger Woodlawn Theatre, which opened a few years after the Drexel Theater.
During the 1920’s, the theater was part of the Fecher & Nortman circuit, which included other South Side theaters such as the Lexington Theater, the Kimbark Theater and the Harvard Theater.
The Drexel Theater was renamed the Ark Theater by the 1940’s when it was operated as the flagship of the Gollos Brothers chain, and continued to operate at least through the 1960’s. The theater has since been torn down.
