Hyde Park Theater

This theatre should not be confused with another former Schoenstadt theatre, the now-shuttered Harper Theatre, which became the Hyde Park 1 & 2 in the early-1990’s.

The Hyde Park Theatre was one of the Schoenstadt’s earlier theatre’s, opening in 1914, and also their last to close, in 1973.

The theatre was demolished long ago.
