This art movie house theatre opened originally around 1966 at the Second City building, 1846 N. Wells Street, but moved to a new location in July 1967 at Piper’s Alley 1608 N. Wells Street in the Old Town neighborhood.
It showed avant-garde and experimental films. The seating capacity was for 240, which was larger than their original space which seated 160. It operated into the 1970’s
The Aardvark was part of a mini-chain of movie houses which also included the 3 Penny Cinema in Lincoln Park, the Bijou (a gay porn house) also on N. Wells Street, the Festival Cinema (formerly the Mode) on N. Sheridan Avenue, and the Rialto Theatre, a former burlesque house on S. State Street.
