This little theatre, which originally sat over 200, opened as the King Theatre in 1920, and was operated by F.H. King. It was a purpose-built movie theatre. It became the Clearing Theatre in 1928. It is located on 63rd Street near Massasoit Avenue, in the Clearing neighborhood for which it was named, just blocks from Chicago’s Midway Airport. It was renamed Mayfair Theatre in 1934. After its movie house days ended in 1964, it was used for decades by a labor union as a meeting hall.
In 2004, the building reopened as the Majestic Midway Theater, which featured live theater, poetry readings, stand-up comedy, concerts, and monthly film screenings by local filmmakers. This was a short lived venture lasting only a few months.
The theater closed in the fall of 2005 and the building has since been converted into offices for a law firm.
