DavidZornig commented about Evanston 5 Theaters on Nov 6, 2015 at 11:10 pm

The Evanston 1 on the East end of the block can be seen shuttered at 8:11 in the below video by Jenniffer Weigel. The Evanston 1 still doesn;t seem to gave it’s own CT page. Maybe I’ll work on adding that today, once I dig up the exact address.

DavidZornig commented about Regal Theater on Nov 4, 2015 at 10:22 pm

You may be on to something. Below is a 1947 Wayne Miller photo, that reads “Looking North on South Parkway at 47th. And pictured is a theater that is clearly not the Regal. Looking North would put the even numbers on the left/West side of the street in that photo.

However all other sources claim the Regal address as 4710, including books referencing the architects Levy & Klein. And the original Lou Rawls theater project that fell through mentioned in the Overview at the top, was only referred to as being “close to the site of the Regal Theater”. Not necessarily on it. The Harold Washington Cultural Center Wikipedia page, seems to be the only source that claims it is in the same site as the Regal stood. And Wikipedia should never be trusted to be accurate. (They list the Century/Diversey Theatre at the 4710 address too. On Levy & Klein’s page.)

Below is the Wayne Miller photo I referenced.

There was a 100th birthday party for the Parkway on 10/23/15. Held across the street. Live music, food, outdoor film projections, and a chance to hear firsthand about the Maryland Film Festival’s plans to turn the Parkway into a 3-screen film center. Copy courtesy of Amy Davis. Below is her Flickering Treasures Facebook page with many more photos of the Parkway and other theatres.
