DavidZornig commented about Skokie Theatre on Jun 22, 2015 at 6:24 pm

Gorilla Tango ended up letting MadKap Productions take over management of it back in April I recall. MadKap had originally bid against Gorilla Tango when it was for sale. The attached article below is from when MadKap first took over. But I think MadKap’s intention was to eventually purchase it from Gorilla Tango. Though I can’t find that original news story. I don’t know if MadKap owns it outright yet or not.

I added the vintage and current photos to the Photo Sections crediting Danyel Brenner. So they don’t disappear after the Go Fund Me page expires.

Here is the Go Fund Me page for the Midway. It has several vintage photos of the original facade. Which I’m sure still exists behind the newer one. Copy & paste to view.

This link highlights a fundraising effort to purchase a digital projector, repair and reopen the Midway. The article says the Midway was built in 1916, and will be celebrating it’s 100th anniversary. So maybe the 1923 date should be changed in the Overview. Copy & paste to view.

DavidZornig commented about Park Theatre on May 30, 2015 at 8:54 am

The Park Theatre was not the Sheridan Theatre. I have a 1938 photo of the Sheridan Theatre. Joe Vogel’s 2009 post indicates it was the same owners as the Sheridan. As soon as I can track down an address for the Sheridan, I will create a page for it and add the photo. Anyone know the Sheridan’s address?

Past realty listings show it as having been built in 1930. But it didn’t open as a theater until 1941.

Below link updates it’s future use, with a replica of it’s original marquee. Copy & paste to view.
