Lion Theatre

The Lion Theatre, in the Pilsen neighborhood, was in operation from at least 1913. It stood on 18th Street near Paulina Street, not far from Harrison Park. The former theater building still survives today, and serves as a grocery store.

Any further information on this theater would be appreciated.

This theater was directly adjacent to the el tracks. In recent years its original white and green glazed brick facade was replaced with plain red brick.
