If you want to taste the flavor of entertainment that built and sustained the UPTOWN THEATRE and other movie palaces in their prime, come out to the historic PICKWICK THEATRE, 5 S. Prospect Ave., in Park Ridge, Illinois, this Friday, Dec. 10, for a special holiday show.

Beginning at 7:30 p.m., the program includes the 1924 silent holiday classic “Peter Pan” with live pipe organ photoplay accompaniment by Chicago’s Jay Warren. Jay will add to the program with a special holiday sing-along.

in the uptown district of Park Ridge.

Tickets are $9 in advance, $8 for students and seniors (advance), $7 for children under 12 (advance), and $11 (all tickets) on the day of the show. You may charge by phone by calling (773) 205-7372.

As usual, Chicago is at the center of great movie and theatre events. Peter Pan will fly at the Wheaton Grand Theater in April, too! I am proud to be a theatre operator in Chicago! Now, let’s get the Uptown open again!
