PARK RIDGE, IL — The Pickwick Theatre will celebrate its 80th anniversary by playing the same silent film it played when it opened: “Lilac Time” with Gary Cooper and Colleen Moore.

The theater, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is distinctive for its 100-foot art deco tower. It has been in continuous operation since 1928 without any modification to the original auditorium and has been owned by the same family since 1967.

Read more about the history of the theater in the Norridge-Harwood Heights News.
