DavidZornig commented about Happy Hour Theatre on Jun 18, 2014 at 10:17 pm

Just added a 1938 photo. The “Ain’t There (dere) No More – New Orleans” FB page I got it from, had comments that said that author Anne Rice bought it in the `90’s. With intentions of making it into a dinner theatre. It apparently is an Oriental Rug store today. She also supposedly bought a church at Prytania & 3rd Street, which she also sold.

Via Mike Stillman.

I think the wooden structure that supported the proscenium arch is still visible, against the back wall of the former theatre.

DavidZornig commented about Belpark Theatre on Jun 5, 2014 at 12:21 am

Drove by today and saw the red & white Public Notice on the door. Then saw a post on the Chicago Theatre Preservation Alliance Facebook page, that included the below link. The BelPark will be the new home of Chicago Tabernacle. The same folks who originally wanted the Portage Theatre. So good news all around, with both now being saved.

Thanks to Mike Stillman for finding out that it became Furth Chapel in 1959, and closed for good in 2002 as Piser-Weinstein Menorah Chapel. It remained vacant since then. I was unable to get back to get auditorium photos.

An article dated today about the reopening. Apparently the liquor license was renewed without the Alderman’s knowledge.

DavidZornig commented about Paris Theater on May 27, 2014 at 3:02 am

It must have been a theater twice then, 1944 and later. Because it was Jefferson Super Mart in 1963, before it became the Paris Theater sometime before 1969. I added a 1963 photo before it was the Paris.

I’m going to go back next week. They are getting closer to the auditorium with the bulldozer, so I should be able to get a couple more photos.
