Early remodeling by Rapp & Rapp, before 1912.

The I cited in my previous comment article also gives the seating capacity of the Casino Garden Theatre as 400.

This house was called the Casino Garden Theatre in 1910, when it was one of four houses featured in an article about theaters on Chicago’s Madison Street that was published in the August 20 issue of The Film Index. The article confirms that the Casino was originally owned by Charles Weeghman. It was managed for him by Harry B. Fitzpatrick. The article says that the Casino Garden Theatre had been operating for almost a year, which means it must have opened in the latter third of 1909.

Owning a casino & the Cubs?..seems fitting. Great update. Thanks Bryan!

The Casino Theatre opened in 1911 and closed in 1937.
