Located at 13th Street W. and Vine Street. Heuck’s Opera House was opened on May 26, 1877. It was renamed People’s Theatre in 1884 following the opening of a New Heuck’s Opera House, also on Vine Street (which became the Rialto Theatre and has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

The People’s Theatre was screening movies by 1914. It had closed by 1926. The front section of the building survives in use as a pizza restaurant ‘Venice on Vine’ in 2022, the auditorium has been demolished and is now a parking lot.
