Ramova Theatre Stands on Shaky Ground
CHICAGO, IL — The Ramova Theatre was once one of the jewels of the Bridgeport neighborhood on the South Side and could be demolished by the city, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Located in the neighborhood where current mayor Richard M. Daley grew up, the Ramova has fallen from grace. Ceiling plaster and debris now blocks the doorways. The deteriorating Ramova Theatre, 3518 S. Halsted, has been shuttered since the mid-1980s.
