Cornell Theater

Located in the Cornell Square neighborhood of Chicago, the Cornell Square Theater opened in 1913, and sat 300. It was located on West 51st Street between Winchester and Wolcott Avenues, close to its namesake park.

The theater, later called the Cornell, closed sometime in the 50s as a movie house. It is home to a church today.
