DavidZornig commented about Varsity Theater on Sep 6, 2017 at 8:10 pm

Exactly. Any hopes of renovation dashed in one dismissive sentence. New construction is all about egos. They can’t be the “visionaries” they think they are if they recycle something. I’m willing to bet they’ve already planned for a shorter tower. So it will look like a concession to the community when they complain about it’s size.

Well this is disturbing. Drop the 37 stories idea, renovate the Varsity which is encapsulated behind the GAP, and they’d be heroes to the community. Don’t believe them when they say it is in “too poor shape to reuse”. From this rendering, it looks like they would annex the alley and tear down almost the whole block going North.

When I owned my collectables shop, I procured about 20-25 wooden folding chairs that originally been in use at the Morton Grove Theatre. They were stensilled as such on the back as I recall. I sold them all to a Civil War reenactor.

DavidZornig commented about Deadwood Theatre on Aug 28, 2017 at 5:17 am

Because there were several other theatres on Main Street in Deadwood, without a specific address for this one, there is no way to search the street view for what is there now. I added the Flame Theatre also on Main a while back, and there is a clothing boutique in that space now.
