The Balmoral Theatre was located across the street from the famous Edgewater Beach Hotel. It featured plenty of parking in two lots at the corner of Balmoral Avenue and Sheridan Road on Chicago’s North Side.
Billed when it opened in December 1962 as “Chicago’s Newest Theatre in 25 Years”, the Balmoral featured “A-List” movies such as “Dr. Zhivago”, “Mary Poppins”, and “Lawrence of Arabia” and was the place to go for both hotel patrons and neighborhood residents.
The theatre was owned by the Demos brothers, Peter, Chris, and Lambros who had previously owned and managed the parking lot operation at the site.
The Balmoral closed in early 1966 and was demolished shortly afterward, replaced by an apartment building.
