OK I’ve added some photos from today with the marquee removed. It exposed some original recessed lighting over the entryway, as well as vertical and square lighting previously hidden by the marquee. 10 vertical fixtures per side, and 14 fixtures per side in a square pattern, that had been encapsulated by the framing for the newer marquee.

Studio Cinema was a single-screen movie theatre that opened in 1962 and closed in 1979. It was operated by General Cinema corporation in the 70’s. Two years later in 1981 it would become the Chicago Ridge Theatre in which was opened by Essaness Theatres.
The marquee was removed sometime this week.
