I met my first wife at the Holiday Ballroom on Halsted in 1966. The same operator also ran the north side Holiday Ballroom in the old Times Theatre on Milwaukee north of Lawrence.
Unless this theatre is being renovated for some kind of performance space, the status should simply be closed.
This theatre was featured on “American Pickers” TV show tonight. They sold the some old film reels and a Beatles film.
