CinemarkFan, I for one will keep my fingers crossed that you achieve that dream of getting that beautiful theater back on its feet showing movies the way they were meant to be seen. You can bet if you get it open I will be your best customer.

Your list is interesting but I tend to think back to the days of the 70’s when a movie opened and stayed in that theater through its run. For instance I would imagine if this were then that THE DARK KNIGHT would have opened in #1 and still been playing there right now as it remains in release. Much like films like STAR WARS and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS did. Hell even a movie like CHINATOWN played 10 weeks or so in that theater. All in all I like your list and oike the way you think. Well done.

Just walk up to the theater. The tours on the weekdays are at noon and they let us in about 11:50. Saturday, I think, there are two tours – one at 11am and one at noon. Double check on the website Cinemark. Earlier it said that the tours were only through September which would mean you would need to go on Tuesday at the latest but we couldn’t find where it said that on the website so perhaps they changed the policy. If you go let me know what you thought.

I have just returned from a tour of the theater. They are open to the public every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for $10 per person and it lasts just over an hour. I must say it was worth every penny. We went from the lobby to a suite box to the balcony down to the main floor again to view the original organ. Then we got to go on stage and then backstage. In the backstage area Frank Sinatra (who re-opened the theater in the 80’s) started a tradition by signing the wall in the hallway. Ever since every performer has signed including entire casts of shows. We got to see the star dressing room and then down to the basement to see some great pictures of the Chicago through the years (one from 1956 with the Chicago playing “Giant” and one from 1957 with the Chicago playing “Brigadoon” while the State Lake across the street was playing “The Bridge on the River Kwai”). Someone above mentioned the condition of the projection room and while we didn’t see it we were told no film projection equipment remains and is rented for the rare time a movie is shown. The guide also claimed cleaning people have seen ghosts at night but he was quick to add he had never seen one himself. It was a great time and I highly recommend it to anyone who can get to it. The tour group was small – only about 14 of us so it was perfect.

JRS40 commented about Carnegie Theatre on Sep 23, 2008 at 2:23 pm

The Carnegie was also the first theater to hold a public sneak preview of THE DEER HUNTER back in late 1978 (it opened in March of 79 I believe). I still have the ad which trumpets Robert DeNiro and also warns that the film is not for anyone under the age of 17. I remember reading later that Michael Cimino was at the preview and no doubt gauged the audience reaction persoanlly to base any cuts he might make to the film.

Cinemark – Awesome! You are really bringing back some memories. I remember seeing CONAN, NEVER CRY WOLF, UNTOUCHABLES and BLACK RAIN there.

JRS40 commented about Sandburg Theatre on Sep 6, 2008 at 9:20 pm

David,

I have an article by the late Gene Siskel that says the owners of the Chelex were going to continue on with the double feature midnight shows because they were still profitable up to the very end under the Playboy ownership but for some reason the owners never followed through. From what I have read the Chelex owners were terrible businessmen which is indicative of the fact that they only owned it for 7 months. Too bad because that might have helped them keep their heads afloat.

Also, apparently, the first owners of the Sandburg were not very good either. They were hurting for business so badly the theater was closed for several months in 1978 and when it was open they played second and third rate fare. Siskel said in reviewing a movie called “The First Nudie Musical” that he had to wear gloves while taking notes because the owners wouldn’t heat the theater. New owners came in around 1979 and turned it into a first rate art house for the last few years of its existence playing films such as “The Last Metro” and “My Dinner With Andre.”

It may have come out in your area in 1981, Ken, as some films were released slowly throught the nation back then but obviously it was 1980 from the booking list above. Also I double checked and Duvall lost to DeNiro (Raging Bull) and Michael O'Keefe lost supporting actor to Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People). Both were 1980 as well.

CinemaMary – Unless it was a typo you are mistaken on the opening of Water Tower Theaters. It was 1976 with “Rocky” and “The Seven Percent Solution” as its opening attractions.

David – Actually “The Great Santini” wasn’t a second run. It had its Chicago premiere at the Cinema. The film was made in 1979 but delayed by the studio who didn’t know how to market it. Robert Duvall was nominated for Best Actor for this film in 1980.

JRS40 commented about Cinema Theater on Aug 29, 2008 at 9:22 am

David, actually the Water Tower Theaters opened at Christmas of 1976 so I don’t know that that was the basis for the Cinema’s demise. I have an old article that states that the area was up for redevelopment for years and that owner Oscar Brotman was running on a month to month lease for the last three years. It sounds to me like developers were intent on putting in retail with no plans whatsoever for a theater. Too bad. I never was in the Cinema though I remember seeing its marquee one time when I was downtown with friends seeing a movie at the Water Tower Theater. I remember the movie was Nicholas Roeg’s “Bad Timing: A Sensual Obsession” and I also remember agreeing with my friends that it was too bad there wasn’t a matinee as we could have gone to see it. I never saw the inside naturally. The same goes for the Carnegie which I have never even seen a picture of. Pretty cool you met Fritz Weaver. I remember him most from “Black Sunday” and “Creepshow.”

David – Yes “The Front Page” is on the schedule I listed, December 1974. It’s easy to miss but it’s there.

JRS40 commented about River Oaks Theatre on May 16, 2008 at 8:08 pm

The last time I was by there, which has been a few months now, is still standing but it is boarded up and there is graffiti all over and it looks really bad. Such a shame for what I think was the best place to see a movie.

JRS40 commented about My movie memories of summer 1978 on May 16, 2008 at 10:00 am

Summer of 78 was a great time for movies. Besides those you named there was also “Foul Play,” “Revenge of the Pink Panther,” “The Swarm,” “Sgt. Pepper,” “The Cheap Detective,” “Heaven Can Wait,” “Capricorn One,” “The Cat From Outer Space” and “Hot Lead and Cold Feet.” All films a 13 year old like me could enjoy. And that doesn’t count the more adul fare like “Eyes of Laura Mars” and “Damien Omen 2.” I got to see the latter but not the former. One of the best movies summers of my life.

JRS40 commented about Crossroads Cinema on Apr 13, 2008 at 8:50 am

Despite my prediction above the Crossroads has been torn down. I drove by last night and only a small part of one side is still standing and should be down in the next day or so. It’s a shame as this was one of the theaters of my youth. Interestingly the marquee is still standing – at least at this moment.

JRS40 commented about Michael Todd Theatre on Mar 8, 2008 at 7:33 pm

Paul, unfortunately I don’t have a specific list but I can tell you this much. The Dearborn was two screens (incorporating the Todd and the Cinestage) and each screen played double features of first run films on each.

I don’t think the PG rated version was released until 1979 so I am guessing this was the R version.
