The manager of the next door antique mall said that the theatre’s owner was a retired military vet who essentially runs it as a hobby. He sells books out of there and occasionally will host live musical performances. A current photo has been uploaded.

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.

My neighbor Joe was the manager of the UA towards its closing. He told me that in 1973, a long-term run of “The Exorcist” was helping keep the doors open while the other Loop theatres were showing Kung Fu and Blaxploitation films.
