Wow. I’m pretty dialed into the classic car community, and I hadn’t even heard of this. Must have been piss poor promotion in advance. My buddy has the replica Graffiti Deuce Coupe. He could have been hired to park out front. Even Candy still does personal appearances with enough notice. (Music Box would have probably had both.) The big Eli’s show was out on Forest Preserve Drive today too. So they were never gonna siphon off that crowd. Sounds like they just didn’t know what they were doing. Thanks for the heads up.

You would have to copy and paste it into your browser, starting from the end of the link so my sentence above it doesn’t highlight. Or just scroll back to 08/06/07 in the comments, and click on the link HowardBHass posted originally that says Behind The Gap.

Just added a 1938 photo. The “Ain’t There (dere) No More – New Orleans” FB page I got it from, had comments that said that author Anne Rice bought it in the `90’s. With intentions of making it into a dinner theatre. It apparently is an Oriental Rug store today. She also supposedly bought a church at Prytania & 3rd Street, which she also sold.

Via Mike Stillman.

I think the wooden structure that supported the proscenium arch is still visible, against the back wall of the former theatre.

Drove by today and saw the red & white Public Notice on the door. Then saw a post on the Chicago Theatre Preservation Alliance Facebook page, that included the below link. The BelPark will be the new home of Chicago Tabernacle. The same folks who originally wanted the Portage Theatre. So good news all around, with both now being saved.

Thanks to Mike Stillman for finding out that it became Furth Chapel in 1959, and closed for good in 2002 as Piser-Weinstein Menorah Chapel. It remained vacant since then. I was unable to get back to get auditorium photos.

An article dated today about the reopening. Apparently the liquor license was renewed without the Alderman’s knowledge.
