Located in the Chatham neighborhood on S. Cottage Grove Avenue near E. 75th Street, this theater opened June 7, 1922, seating 1,100. It was equipped with a 2 manual 4 ranks Wurlitzer organ.

It was originally part of the Cooney Brothers National Theaters Corp. circuit, which was acquired by Warner Brothers in the 1930’s.

It continued to be operated by Warner Brothers until the 1930’s when it it was closed, and from the early-1940’s it was used as a warehouse. The theater has long since been demolished. Today, a gas station is on the site of the Chatham Theater.
