Located in the South Side neighborhood of Woodlawn, at E. 63rd Street and S. Woodlawn Avenue, the over 700-seat Lexington Theatre was opened in 1913 for the Ascher Brothers circuit. It was designed by architect John E.O. Pridmore. It was remodeled in the summer of 1939 to the plans of Rapp & Rapp and was renamed Lex Theatre.
It operated into the 1970’s before closing, showing adult films in its last few years. The theatre has since been demolished.
