Here is the 2008 preliminary landmark designation archive.
It describes the property and lists various additional history that may or may not have been in previous dead links.
I happened across it looking up something else.

I added a few recent pics of the West elevation.
Sadly all the old building perimeter light sockets have had blank plates installed over the boxes.

I suspect the development that was to be built incorporating the Village Theatre facade either fell through or has been put on hold.
The banners said Spring 2017, and one of them has blown over the top of the old marquee.
Nothing has taken place except the vacancies on the North Avenue side.
Elly’s Restaurant is still open.

Though it says Chicago, the Portage in Wisconsin is in the parade footage beginning at the 59:17 mark.
Ah thanks, will do.
Rear or side entrance appears several times in this film beginning at the 59:17 mark.
I caught a ghost sign on the rear of the theatre from the L yesterday, in the afternoon sun.
I’ll have to get back up to that area and see if I can access the alley to get a pic.
Extensive 9 page Marquee Magazine link about the Iroquois with more photos, in pdf format. Via the Chicago Theatre Preservation Alliance Facebook page.
“Live On Stage” on the banner is a pretty good clue.
Any bookings or photos of such at any theatres, at any time on CT are relevant.
Because they add to that given theatre’s complete history, and going forward.
Not limited only to it’s “cinema history”.
Nowhere in the Community Guidelines does it say that that is a criteria.
Some theatres converted back & forth from live events to film several times.
Cinema Treasures = the theatre’s buildings.
By your logic, no photos should ever be posted of any theatres that have since converted to live events only.
Which would be most of them, if they survived at all.
How many theatres opened as vaudeville houses, and then converted to film?
Should all their early history be omitted as well, because it is not “cinema history”?
Photos of specific bookings or events whether film or not, can sometimes jar the memories of members and encourage them to post again about that given theatre.
Particularly when years pass in between comments.
Also, some members like to see any alterations to the buildings that may have occurred over the years.
I only comment when I add photos, because it sometimes helps keeps CT active.
Usually in a positive manner…
