Chicago Theatre Marquee Being Restored

posted by Menutia on January 26, 2004 at 4:20 pm

CHICAGO, IL — I do not have an official story from the theater/management about the renovation of the landmark marquee at the Chicago Theatre, however the activity this week has been amazing.

The vertical “flag” of the theatre was completely replaced 6 or 7 years ago. Now the landmark marquee is getting its due, as you can see in these two photos.

Bryan,

Yes, it was… :) the Former State Lake Theatre to be exact.

Great news from “Menutia” about the ‘restoration’ of the CHICAGO’S marquee, and I hope that it will be the ornate original design, and I am equally glad that he used the figurative term “flag” for the vertical sign, since some who should know better are using the slang term ‘blade’ for the properly-called Vertical Sign. Some even confuse the Vertical with the Marquee! If we don’t keep accurate terms for our thoughts, how will we keep an accurate handle on our thoughts?

May the CHICAGO continue as one of the nation’s last, great operating palace

We currently have a great offer for your refurbishing project. Although we can not help with funding, we can offer great Auditorium seats (fully cushioned \ floor mount) for a very great price.

For $59 USD we have numerous very well maintained seats, digital pictures can be provided, that could drastically reduce your renovation costs.

Give us a call (780) 432-4765 if you would be interested in these very historical seats.
