The Arlington Theater opened in 1925, on North Evergreen Avenue near Northwest Highway. It replaced the old Arlington Hall on the same site. It was wired for sound in 1930. From the time it opened well into the 1930’s, the Arlington Theater hosted both live entertainment on its stage, as well as movies. The Arlington Theater was completely rebuilt in 1941 and reopened in 1942. Designed in Streamline Moderne style to the deigns of architectural firm Smith & Neubek.
After decades as an entertainment destination of downtown Arlington Heights, the aging theater was closed in 1986, and demolished that same year. An eleven-story apartment building was built on the site in 1987.
A new Arlington Theater opened in 1999 at the Arlington Town Square, with six screens and stadium seating.
