The article says the theater opened in 1917, and closed in 1969, although there is a photo of it with the marquee advertising ‘Wuthering Heights’ (1970), and a bunch of new cars (presumably from the dealer) parked on the sidewalk. Go to: http://gis.hpa.state.il.us/hargis/ and enter ‘Woodbine Carthage’ in the search bar to see the photo.
