Previous Names: Irma Theatre, University City Theatre
Opened as the Irma Theatre in 1915. It was renamed U City Theatre in 1938, so named as it was short for the suburb it was located in. It was one of three theatres located in the U City loop area, the Tivoli Theatre and Varsity Theatre both located on Delmar just around the corner and down the street. The U City Theatre was one of the more plain theatres but a nice neighborhood theatre.
With the coming of television and the competition of the other theatres, the U City Theatre closed in January 1953. The Tivoli Theatre was later renamed U-City Cinema.
