Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the Oakland neighborhood, on Cottage Grove Avenue near Pershing Road, this theater originally opened in 1908 as the Swanson, a 600-seat vaudeville house. About five years later, it was renamed the Oakland. It would later switch to movies. The Oakland survived into the 30s, and has since been razed.
