Opened around 1913 by Fred Wemer, the National Theater stood on S. State Street at W. Harrison Street. The National Theater was still in operation in 1945 according to the Film Daily Yearbook of that year, seating 262. The National Theater remained in operation for a handful of years more before closing. Jones College Prep High School is now located on the site of the theater.
This theater is not to be confused with the somewhat larger theater of the same name in the Englewood neighborhood, later known as the Ace Theatre and finally Kim Theatre (which has its own page on Cinema Treasures).
