When I visited the theater in the late ‘80’s the owner said that this used to be a vaudville theater before becoming a 100% movie theater. I have some images behind the screen I’ll try to find. There were crowsnests and a full wooden stage back there.

This was converted to the South Chicago Mall in the 60’s.
Then that mall was torn down around 1997 and you could see the old screen inside.
Jim Klekowski owner of http://www.ellisavenue.com has a book on the area and I’m sure some shots, he was pretty adament about the tear down.

It should be available?
I turned it off at one point but it seems to be working from the above links.
