This theatre, located in the Uptown neighborhood on N. Clark Street near W. Wilson Avenue, was open by 1910. On December 14, 1919, the theatre had a grand reopening, according to a story in the December 29, 1919 Motion Picture News now called the New Clark Theatre, now under the management of Frank Forsythe, former manager of the Shakespeare Theatre, and featured three acts of vaudeville and the motion picture adaptation of Edna Ferber’s “The Gay Old Dog”.
The theatre closed in 1926 and reopened a year later as the Clark-Wilson Recreation Center, featuring 16 lanes of bowling. By 1939 it was called the Clark-Wilson Lanes. The bowling alley was heavily damaged in a fire in 1955. It later housed a factory, and has been home for a number of years to a wholesale retailer. The building received a new facade in 2012.
