Though it's been commercially uninhabited since the early 2000s, the Lawndale Theater is an incredibly beautiful abandoned building. Located in North Lawndale, Illinois, it very much looks like a church, as its final days being used it acted as one. However, it was originally built to be 2,000+ seat theater in the 1920s. It's history also crosses path with Chicago's notorious Prohibition-era gangs, once under the control of a colleague of Al Capone.
Today, it sits tall and white, slowly fading into the mix of other abandoned, aging buildings. If you get an opportunity to take a peep inside this magnificent theater, be sure to take advantage, before history and humans take a toll on the structure, and knock it down forever.
