The New Dundee Theater, later known as the Dundee Main Street Theater, was built by Lyman Andrews in 1911 as a venue for vaudeville and movies.
The Dundee Theater screened $1.50 second-run movies before closing on January 31, 1999.
Clearwater Productions took over the Dundee Theater and its adjacent properties in 2002. Clearwater has since returned the theater to its intended function presenting live music and comedy to the western suburbs and Chicago metropolitan area. The theater was renamed Clearwater Theater.
It was ‘temporarily’ closed in September 2011 by the city of West Dundee for operating over a year without a liquor licence. However, the theatre never reopened. In October 2012, the building was ‘For Sale’. In Ocrober 2017 it reopened as the RocHaus, a live music venue.
