This almost-300 seat theater opened as the Home Theatre around 1913 or 1914, located on Armitage Avenue (then called Center Street) and Cicero Avenue. The theater was renamed the Main Theater about 1940 and closed during the 50s.

I drove by today and saw that the theater building is not demolished, but rather is being rehabbed, probably for retail. One can see the spaces in the front where the playbills were displayed.

For years, it has been used for storage, and the front always looked like a theater, with the ticket booth covered with metal.
