McClurg Court interior items for sale

posted by Michael Zoldessy on March 31, 2011 at 7:30 am

CHICAGO, IL — We own a theater which is located in downtown Chicago, IL. It’s the former classic McClurg Court Cinemas that has been closed since 2003. From the 70’s to the 90’s McClurg Court was the premier place to watch a film in the downtown area. With the exception of one of the three theaters the place was left in perfect working order when it was closed. We feel the items in the theater could be of great value to the right person. I just happened to come across your site this afternoon and thought some of your members could be the perfect fit.

We’re offering:

3 working 35mm projectors with DTS systems and platters (the units power up, film runs through and projects onto the screen, the DTS systems power up but are untested)
2 movie screens (my best guess is aprox 20x30 or 20x40) that are still standing and come with the support springs, housing, etc…
2 (4 total) sets of dark and very thick house curtains.

We are looking to move these items quickly and will be taking the best offer. Local pickup will most likely be required due to the size and weight of these items.

Anyone looking for information can contact me directly at

If only I had the money. Those purple curtains are still fresh in my head.

Is there any pictures or specs of theater #1? I would love to see it again.

If you now own this theatre, what are you planning to do with it?

How much are you asking for the seats and any concession equipment.
