Construction started on the Illinois Theatre in 1910. Delays on the construction with the theatre finally opening on February 29, 1914 as the Isis Theatre. The theatre was owned by Olson and Barton. The theatre seated 800. The Isis Theatre was patterned after the Isis Theatre in Denver, Colorado. The Isis Theatre had a 2 Manual Kimbal Organ upon opening. Ruth Noller was the organist for the Isis Theatre.
The Isis Theatre became the Terminal Theatre in 1911 and then the Ambassador Theatre on July 23, 1933 and was still listed in 1957. It was last briefly named Downtown Theatre but I could not find when the theatre closed.
