The Film Index, April 16, 1910:
“The Illinois Theatre, at 1252 Milwaukee avenue, Chicago, was purchased by A. T. Steingard last June. Though a young man, he has displayed considerable managerial ability.
He dropped vaudeville as soon as he got control and is pleasing his numerous patrons with fine service, booked by the Theatre Film Service. He uses also the latest songs and good singers.
Mr. Steingard receives numerous compliments from his patrons on the pleasing quality of the entertainment offered.”
