Nope. It’s the stage production. FIDDLER ON THE ROOF movie (1971) never played at the McVickers Theatre. It played at the McClurg Court Theatre.

The Marquette Theatre was actually on 63rd Street; however, the building did wrap around on Kedzie Avenue. We all said the Marquette Theatre was at 63rd & Kedzie.

The Will Rogers was demolished in 1990 after being closed for four years. I added a photo that was taken in either 1989 or 1990. Notice the Daley for Mayor bench.

The Clermont is currently being demolished. The front facade is still standing but I don’t know if it will survive the wrecker’s ball.

CStefanic. The Biograph has screened some digital presentations in its main theatre. A digital projector was temporarily installed. I’m sure anything can be screened there as long as the equipment is installed, as well as a screen.
