This theatre would have been very close to the Trianon Ballroom. If anyone has pics of either they’d be greatly appreciated.

Forgot to check the box again…Doh!
Thanks for posting that BW. It’s nice to know that even in it’s current thrift store use, they returned the entrance area to a little more as/like original.
Nothing going on yet. “Pineapple Express” is still on the McCormick side marquee, from when it closed.
Orange city violation notice on the doors last I drove by.
So this must be the current hardware store theatre. Once the address is corrected of course.
I don’t believe this one is the current hardware store one. I’ve seen/posted on that one on CT, but not sure under which name it’s listed. The hardware store one was also a bar called Chasers around 1980.
Can you help us BW?
I’m pretty sure we saw the Ali bio pic “The Greatest” at the Shangri-La. Before it went XXX or karate.
That black awning across the street was Govner’s Pub. They’d actually let people cash their paychecks at the bar, and then kept them there drinking. That building was also torn down a few years back as I recall.
Footage of Cabrini-Green WAS used for the “Good Times” TV show open. As well as other B-Roll of Chicago. But that was it. The interiors were filmed in California. “In front of a live studio audience”, as they said at shows end.
P.S. The Coronet’s on that site too.
