The Hoyburn Theatre, one of Evanston’s earlier movie houses, opened December 15, 1914, across from Fountain Square on Davis Street between Chicago Avenue and Orrington Avenue. The Hoyburn Theatre was equipped with a 2 manual Kimball organ. It was closed in 1927 and was converted into a music store. In 1943, the buildings' owners Balaban & Katz donated it to the American Red Cross for its headquarters. It was demolished in 1966 to build a drive-in facility for the State National Bank.
