LINDY Theatre; Chicago, Illinois.

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened around 1910 as the Americus, this small theater was located on Ogden Avenue near Trumbull Avenue in the North Lawndale neighborhood, not far from Douglas Park. Later renamed the Lawndale, then the New Americus, and lastly, the Lindy, this movie house operated into the 1950s. It has since been torn down.

An ad in the Chicago Tribune, Friday, September 12, 1932, announces that the new Lindy, opens today at 6 pm, 3437 Ogden, with Billie Dove and Clive Brook in “Sweethearts and Wives.” Everything New!

pardon me, for the time being ths misplaced entry’ll have to do, but,

there was another theatre on Ogden Ave a few blocks east of the Lindy, not yet mentioned on this site or anywhere

and it was called The Ogden, in the 2700 W. block, northside of street and that’s specific as I can be at the moment

(yes I’m aware there was another Ogden Theatre over on 63rd St)

In “IMAGES of AMERICA- CHICAGO’S JEWISH WEST SIDE” by Irving Cutler, there is a great shot of the Lindy’s marquee on page 89.

Could this be the Lindy’s marquee? The 1940 photo doesn’t seem to match any of the other Lindys listed at CT: Boxoffice
