CHICAGO, IL — This isn’t news, since this project has been going on since the first of August, but here it is anyway.
The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs has come up with an interesting plan for the long-dormant Loop (aka Telenews) Theatre on State and Randolph streets (current address is 8 E. Randolph). The building sits next to the legendary Chicago Theatre.

The word was the Grand Theatre here in Baltimore was to come down this fall, and they have been busy working to get the entire block ready for the wrecking ball. This was one of Baltimore’s surviving theatres into the 1980’s, and it’s a shame to see it go. (It shows up in several John Waters films.) One a better note, they finished up the Patterson Community Center (AKA Patterson Theatre) to the West of the Grand, complete with a new vertical marquee.
