Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Located in the Greater Grand Crossing neighborhood on S. South Chicago Avenue near S. Cottage Grove Avenue, this theater was in operation by 1911. It appears in an October 27, 1913 Chicago Tribune article on movie theaters cited for bad air quality by the city, and then again in the Tribune’s film listings for January and November 1914.

Today, the Gary Comer College Prep school is located on the site of this theater.
