Opened in 1917 for the Schoenstadt circuit, this theater, originally seating over 2000, once contained a 3/11 Kilgen organ.
Designed by Henry L. Newhouse, the former Atlantic Theater was located in what was once known as the South Lawndale neighborhood (today’s Little Village or La Villita) on 26th Street at Harding Avenue.
The Atlantic continued to operate as a movie theater into the 80s, last featuring Spanish-language films (by the mid-70s, it had been twinned operating as the Atlantic I & II). In 1996, long after it was closed, the interior of the theater building was gutted and converted into shopping mall. The Atlantic’s facade, however, still remains more or less intact.
