This little theater, which originally sat over 200, opened in the early years of the 20th century as a nickelodeon and later became a movie house until closing in 1951. The Clearing was later known as the Mayfair. 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. After its movie house days ended, 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.
The theater closed in the fall of 2005 and the building has since been converted into offices for a law firm.
