Opened as the Pine Grove Theatre for the Alfred Hamburger circuit in April 1915, this Lakeview neighborhood theatre was located on W.Sheridan Road, between North Broadway and N. Pine Grove Avenue. In 1920, the theatre was renamed the Panorama Theatre. When it was acquired by the Essaness chain in 1929, the theatre was again renamed, this time as the Little Theatre. The name was returned to the Panorama Theatre from 1932-1939, but after that, became the Essex Theatre.
By about the late-1950’s, the Essex Theatre was known as the Guild Theatre and closed February 22, 1964. It was later demolished, and in the 1970’s, an apartment complex was constructed on the site of the theatre.
