Located in the Bronzeville neighborhood at E. 35th Street and Grand Boulevard (now Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive), the National Theater was in operation prior to 1910 when it’s listed in the September 10th issue of The Film Index of that year as having recently reopened.

By 1914, the theater had been renamed the Fountain Theater, and was part of a chain of theaters owned by O.C. Hammond that also included the Phoenix Theatre, Elba Theater and Vendome Theater. It disappears from the Chicago Tribune film listings by 1917, and in 1918 a grocery store is listed at this address.

Today, the property is occupied by a gas station.
