This North Lawndale neighborhood theatre could seat 608, and opened in 1912. It was located on Roosevelt Road (then still called W. 12th Street), between Independence Boulevard and S. Lawndale Avenue (though it actually was closer to S. Lawndale Avenue, it was named after the grander Independence Boulevard).
The Independence Theatre was remodeled in an Art Deco style and renamed the Road Theatre in 1938. It remained in operation until closing in 1951. It was razed during the 1960’s. A gas station is on the site today.
