This Near West Side neighborhood theater, located on Madison Street near Ashland Avenue, close to Union Park (and a few blocks from the present-day location of the United Center), opened in 1914, and was operated as part of the Schoenstadt circuit for most of its existence (which wasn’t very long).

It appears to have been closed by the early 30s and has long since been demolished. A fast food restaurant is located on the site today.
