Previous Names: Lyceum Theatre, DePaul University Auditorium
The College Theatre opened in 1907, named for its proximity to DePaul University. The theater stood on Sheffield Avenue between Belden and Webster Avenues. In 1918, the theater was renamed the Lyceum, but closed as a movie house two years later.
DePaul converted the building into a gym in 1923, as it remained until 1956, during which it was known officially as the DePaul University Auditorium, but was nicknamed "The Barn". The building was torn down in 1979.
