I caught a ghost sign on the rear of the theatre from the L yesterday, in the afternoon sun. I’ll have to get back up to that area and see if I can access the alley to get a pic.

DavidZornig commented about Winter Garden Theatre on Jan 3, 2017 at 8:55 am

“Live On Stage” on the banner is a pretty good clue. Any bookings or photos of such at any theatres, at any time on CT are relevant. Because they add to that given theatre’s complete history, and going forward. Not limited only to it’s “cinema history”. Nowhere in the Community Guidelines does it say that that is a criteria. Some theatres converted back & forth from live events to film several times. Cinema Treasures = the theatre’s buildings.

By your logic, no photos should ever be posted of any theatres that have since converted to live events only. Which would be most of them, if they survived at all. How many theatres opened as vaudeville houses, and then converted to film? Should all their early history be omitted as well, because it is not “cinema history”? Photos of specific bookings or events whether film or not, can sometimes jar the memories of members and encourage them to post again about that given theatre. Particularly when years pass in between comments. Also, some members like to see any alterations to the buildings that may have occurred over the years. I only comment when I add photos, because it sometimes helps keeps CT active. Usually in a positive manner…

Expandable link from Calumet 412, with additional pics not in the Photo Section. Eerie that the finale of the show that night was “Then Away We Go”.

December 25, 1971 Tribune movie section, showing it was named “Capri Cinema” at that time. So it reverted from and back to 3 Penny Cinema again after that. Should be added to the Overview.
