The Luna Theatre opened November 11, 1937 with Loretta Young in “Love Under Fire” & George Murphy in “London by Night”. It was designed in an Art Moderne style with seating originally for around 1,200 (later reduced to 871). The theatre was located in the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood of Chicago and was just around the corner from the 2,004-seat Belpark Theatre.
The Luna Theatre was the 47th theatre to operate by the Balaban and Katz chain, and they operated it for much of its entire time in operation, apart from later years when it was part of Plitt Theaters chain. The Luna Theatre closed in the early-1980’s and was demolished in 1986. A Walgreens now operates on the site.
