That’s odd, last week the AMC website listed it as “Now Open”. Must’ve been a delay.

From an advertisement in a 1917 cookbook put out by the Ladies' Aid Society of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Lombard:

“THE PARKSIDE is a Lombard institution, for the recreation of Lombard people.

THE BEST in photoplays may always be seen at THE PARKSIDE.

OUR AIM: GOOD CLEAN AMUSEMENT FOR YOUNG AND OLD."

This doesn’t come up in searches with the space in between the La and Salle. Also, it should be listed as being located in the Loop with the other Loop theaters.
