If it was listed as the Pix in 1950 then it had gone back to an earlier name. The January 30, 1942, issue of The Film Daily said: “Chicago’s Victory Theater, formerly the Pix, has reopened after extensive modernization.”

This theatre is listed as the Pix in the 1950 phone book.

The Vista was built in 1914. It was a rather intriguing building, as it had alleys to either side of it, a garage behind the building, a dance hall of almost equal size to the theater on the same level, and a billiard hall upstairs.

The Victory has been demolished for a long time now. The marquee read simply ‘V’. A Popeye’s now occupies the site.
