This theatre also shows an occasional film under a program called “Twisted Flicks.” The sound is muted and the audience improvises dialogue. Website: http://www.jetcityimprov.org/

Furiouslion, that’s very good news. Do you have a link to an article or story for attribution?

The marquee for this theatre shows up in a process shot in the 1947 film “Daisy Kenyon”

Would that be the projection booth that the young people are walking under?

The 16 in the name refers to the 16mm film format of most porn films back then.

Website is down. Phone disconnected. Current phone is 813-839-1600. You will get ahold of someone who works there and can tell you what movies are playing. They do have a Facebook page but no movie times on it. Best to use Fandango or Moviephone to find out what is playing.

Sorry to hear that, Stan. I used that crossing last year and came back through Sarnia as part of our trip. Never had one bit of trouble either time. Many Michiganders commute to jobs in Canada on a daily basis. Maybe you caught a person having a bad day.

David, as a life-long Chicagoan, I can relate to the street name being mangled. Even by folks who live here.

Trolleyguy commented about Hippodrome Theater on Sep 12, 2017 at 7:09 am

I added a 1946 picture in the Photos section of this theatre’s marquee. The general rundown condition of the neighborhood is obvious.

I should think it would be safe to say that this theatre has been demolished.

I used to go there as well. I heard the same stories about the landfill or scrapyard.

Trolleyguy commented about AMC Navy Pier IMAX on Sep 1, 2017 at 6:56 am

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.
