This Irving Park neighborhood theatre opened in 1910 as the Mabel Theatre, located on Elston Avenue near Central Park Avenue.

In 1934 it was renamed the Revue Theatre, and continued operating until 1951. The building is currently used as a plumbing fixture store.

I was mistaken; the central was in fact located at 3937 N Central Park, just a few doors away.

Also, two Sanborn maps show the capacity as 496.

And the present use is a plumbing fixture store called “Showerworks”

Hi BWChicago;

The other listing on this site for a Central Theatre in Chicago is fairly far away. Did the Central that was near the Revue have another name?

Thanks!
