There’s not much information on this theatre. It opened in 1913 as the Esthena Theatre. It was renamed Southport Theatre in 1923, but this was short lived as it closed later that year.
It spent the last several years as Crown Liquors. I have a 1914 photo copy of a Chicago Herald newspaper movie section in which the Esthena Theatre is listed. The 1929 opening of the Music Box Theatre down the street was a contributing factor to this theatre ever reopening. When the theatre was torn down in 1999, the sidewalk was ripped up and underneath it was a marble sidewalk that read "Esthena Theatre."
