The 41 Outdoor Theater was opened on May 21, 1949. It was designed by Chicago based architect Robert K. Bauerle out of architectural firm Rapp & Rapp. I remember this theater when I was a child. My parents used to go there in the 1960’s and we would sleep in the back seat after getting worn out on the swings and slides. I remember seeing “Goldfinger” and when The Beatles were popular, my older brother insisted on seeing “Help!” and “A Hard Day’s Night”.
The original screen was huge, like a building. Later, a second screen was added. The site is now occupied by a trucking business. All that is left are the concrete pillars of the second screen.
