Located in the Washington Park neighborhood, not far from the actual park itself, on 61st Street at Vernon Avenue, this theater opened as the Vernon in 1914.

Renamed the Eden Theatre in 1930, it was again renamed, the Amo, a year later. At the time it closed in 1956, the theater was known as the 61st Street Theatre.

The former theater building had been used for many years as a church, but has since been demolished.
