DavidZornig commented about Follies Theater on Apr 10, 2017 at 6:57 am

9/16/77 Sun-Times movie section added with the Follies ad in the lower left hand corner. Note they used “D-T' for "Deep Throat”. This also helps date the previously posted photo with “Deep Throat” on the marquee. So the Overview can be changed from 1975 to 1977 as far as the showing of that film at the Follies.

1981 photo added credit John P. Keating Jr. Not sure if I mentioned it before, but the black tiles on the facade were called Vitrolite. Very popular material back in the day.

DavidZornig commented about State Theater on Apr 4, 2017 at 7:55 am

Just added a late 1960 photo, with “High Time” and “The Enemy General” on the marquee. So it was still operating then. They were released in September & October of 1960.

The current street view shows that it has indeed been replaced by the Alvarez Condominiums now, which I believe is a new structure. Since the auditorium roof line is no longer visible. The small building to it’s left in the 1960 photo, still remains today.

The Florida Theatre’s grand opening was April 8th 1927. It is celebrating it’s 90th anniversary this Saturday with a free Buster Keaton film. Article below also has the timeline of it’s conversion in 1983 to a performing arts center and beyond.

Ran across this 1992 Tribune article about the Oak’s then conversion to a music venue. Further proof on how sadly short that incarnation was to last.

DavidZornig commented about Round-Up Theatre on Apr 1, 2017 at 1:05 pm

It was still the Round-Up Theatre in 1964 and 1970, the dates of the two photos I uploaded. It had become the Round-Up in 1947 when Ted Gamble took it over. With a Westerns only policy and Western themed interior. I have found no record of it returning to the Rex Theatre name.
