I used to go there as well. I heard the same stories about the landfill or scrapyard.
The online auction of the theatre’s equipment and seating is beginning. After the auction is completed, the theatre will be demolished. Article in Chicago Tribune: http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/highland-park/news/

Monona Ave, not Minona is now Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
It was opened in 1916 as the Chicago Municipal Pier. It was named Navy Pier in 1927 in honor of WWI Navy veterans. During WWII, the Navy used it as a training center.
Functions should include: Movies, classic
The proposed multi-million $ development of the Monroe Block might incorporate the façade of the National into one of the new buildings.
I called their phone line and heard a long announcement about how they were now in their second week of being open. Also 2 different movies than what TomMc11 posted. I think they’re open.
Just added a 1938 shot in Photos of the marquee with a Los Angeles streetcar framing the picture.
What appears to be the marquee for this theatre shows up in a couple of scenes in the movie: “The Dark Tower.”
1947 picture added to Photos section.
In the late 40s, my neighborhood theatre wouldn’t allow soda pop in the auditorium. It had to be consumed in the lobby.
1954 pictures added to photos section.
Watched this last night on Amazon Prime. Really goes into the social impact of drive-ins on American culture.
From the website, how this theatre got its name: The cinema is named after Mrs Fay Howard, late wife of cinema owner Don Howard. Fay had died suddenly earlier in 1982, and Fay’s Twin was built in tribute to their shared vision of a brand new cinema complex for Taree.

That is correct. It is in the original area where the gold rush started in California. This city was known by several different names, including Old Dry Diggings and Hangtown before officially becoming Placerville in 1854.

The Music Box will be showing “2001:A Space Odyssey” in 70mm June 30-July 6.
The Google Street View image was taken in August 2013.
Streetcars used to run down the grassy median in the street.
Function should be retail.
The Pepin Chamber of Commerce informed me that the theatre is definitely closed. They believe that the group running it is either dissolving or reorganizing. The word “Fly” represents fly fishing lures. Status should be closed.
The marquee and ticket booth show up prominently in the current film “Live by Night.”
Marquee shot added to photos section.
Nice and good news for symphony goers. Still doesn’t bring movies back to downtown Milwaukee. Not even an art theatre.
