Opened in 1910 as the Americus Theatre, this small theatre was located on W. Ogden Avenue near S. Trumbull Avenue in the North Lawndale neighborhood, not far from Douglas Park. In 1929 it was renamed the Lawndale Theatre, then the New Americus Theatre. On September 12, 1932 it was reopened as the Lindy Theatre with Billie Dove & Clive Brook in “Sweethearts and Wives”.
Not to be confused with the Lindy Theatre on W. Madison Street which has its own page on Cinema Treasures, this Lindy Theatre operated until 1950. It has since been torn down.
