Or CT could just go ahead fix this, since it’s been an issue for so long…
I have read in the past that the auditorium and interior of the theatre were already gutted prior to the landmark designation. So it’s only the facade that will be protected at this point.
BTW readers will not be able to open the above link as it is posted. This has been an issue ever since CT changed their website design.
I just added a 1955 photo of the Theatre Francais I found on Facebook.
I just added a photo of the Palace Theatre I found on Facebook.
The marquee matches the one in Joe Vogel’s postcard image posted on 04/13/13.
The address needs to be changed to 2000 N. Western.
Check the 1993 flier I posted in the Photos Section.
Several Chicago Tribune articles from 1992 also confirm the address.
FYI. I just posted a nice 1952 photo of the Montana.
Just added a 1957 photo of the Lyric Theatre.
I just added a 1948 photo of the Odeon as the State Theatre. State should be added as an additional name for the Odeon.
I just added an early `50’s photo of the Estacada as the Broadway Theater. The building is identical to the present day Google view that disappeared when I added what is now the first photo.
Broadway should be added as another name to the Estacada description. (I also misspelled Estacada with a “c” in my description with the photo.)
I just added another photo from 1958.
The Arkansas Capitol Building can be seen at the far end of the street in both photos.
I meant to say the same Virginia Theatre & buildings as in Ken’s 1937 photo posted on 8/26/06.
Redlands Footlighters I meant to type.
Sure wish there was a way to correct comments on CT…
According to the Redlands Footlanders' website, “The Curious Savage” opened at their new home the Grove Theatre in 1952. The above photo is opening night, and is likely the original source for the photo.
This was supposed to read 1946.
FYI, there are some interior photos of the Lowe’s on a website called www.RochesterSubway.com
Click on “Select Month”, and then “October 2012”, then scroll down.
FYI, there are never before seen photos of the RKO Rochester on a website called www.RochesterSubway.com
Go to the “Select Month” feature, and click on “October 2012”. Then scroll down until you see the photos.
I’m unable to attach the link since CT changed their page format.
RSH1967, the B.F. Goodrich building bnehind the Shell in your photo is still standing too.
But it is a Goodyear dealer today.
I forgot to add the name of the person who posted the 3 B&W 1948 photos, that I re-posted in the Photos Section above.
They were originally posted by Crystal Cheeseman Roling Porter to the “You know you’re from Freeport if…” Facebook page.
I should add “Debut” closed after only 5 performances because of poor reviews. But even if it was the last live show as the Holiday, it was still 1956. But early enough in the year that there is likely little record of it other than her website.
I just added a photo of the Holiday Theatre, with the live show “Debut” starring Inger Stevens on the marquee.
According to her website it opened there 2/22/56.
Which means live theater lasted one more year than the 1955 date in the Overview.
It’s on the Coronet page too LTS.
The Coronet is at the 12:32 mark.
I just added a November 28th 1923 photo of the Milda Theater, courtesy of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago.
To CT Administrators, please add “Photo copyright J.J. Sedelmaier” to your main description of the Hoyburn Theatre. Since it is the only photo in the Photos Section of the Hoyburn, it is appearing in the overview by default. But the photo credit does not appear unless it is clicked on twice. Which won’t happen since it’s in the overview. Thanks.
CT posted the photo before I could finish writing the description.
The Standard Theatre marquee is on the right in 1958.
Photo source unknown.
Correction, Ben Portsmouth will be playing there August 8th.
