This Georgian-Colonial style theater was designed by Chicago architect Erwin G. Fredrick. Photos of it appeared in the February 27, 1943, issue of Boxoffice. The house was originally independently operated by owners Mr. and Mrs. H.L. Cooper.

Inside the store, near the front entrance, there are 10-15 framed photos of the building when it was a theater. There are exterior and interior photos. If you get to Chesterton, stop in the store and take a look at these pictures.
