Nokomis Theater

Built in 1915 to the plans of architect Joseph E. Nason. The Nokomis Theater was remodeled in 1928 to the plans of architectural firm Ellerbe & Company.

The Nokomis Theater was closed in 1952, and converted into retail use, later becoming an auto body shop.

In recent years it has been partially restored and is in use by the Chicago Avenue Fire Arts Center.
