Opened in 1915 for the Ascher Brothers circuit (two years later taken over by the Lubliner & Trinz circuit) in the once-fashionable Uptown neighborhood, the Lakeside was located on Sheridan Road at Lakeside Place, not far from Lincoln Park. Originally, the theater sat well over 1000.
The Lakeside Theatre closed around late 1966 or the beginning of 1967, and was acquired by the Dance Center of Columbia College in 1970.
Thirty years later Columbia College vacated the building for a larger, new home in the South Loop. The former Lakeside today houses a youth center.
