The Steger Theatre opened in 1918. During the 1930’s, it was briefly known as the Grand Theatre, but the original name returned after the theatre switched owners again. It closed in the early-1980’s.

Wow, I had no idea there was a theater down there. Any old photos or stories would be greatly appreciated.

My uncle owned this theater and I worked the small concession area in the lobby. He also owned the Sauk Trail Drive In Theater in South Chicago Heights. The Steger Theater was only open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. It catered mostly to the children and families of Steger. I have fond memories.

I remember seeing the movie, “Orca” here in the 1970s. I also recall a showing of “Grand Theft Auto” (Ron Howard’s first directorial feature, I think). Fond memories. Here is some information I found elsewhere: Steger Theater, 16 East 34th Street, William Bales, proprietor. Fern Bales, his wife, helped him run the theater. She also worked at Steger Furniture Manufacturing Company in the 1960’s to 1970’s.
