Aftermath of Chicago Avenue Theater fire

This theater was built before 1910. It was laid out somewhat oddly, with the auditorium parallel to the street and the lobby opening on the cross-aisle of the house. It had a small balcony.

It burned January 9, 1918, in a fire that caused a wall collapse which killed six firemen. The collapse may have had to do with heavy snow on the roof.
