Just posted a 1934 poster for the Sutton Theatre. Spelling should be changed from “Theater” to “Theatre” in the Overview description.

DavidZornig commented about Rex Theatre on Dec 23, 2013 at 5:09 am

After some research it appears it originally opened as the Orpheum. Had a minor fire in 1912, then a major fire in 1920. Was rebuilt and remained the Orpheum at least through the 1920’s. It was later renamed the Rialto probably in the 30's, and finally the Rex in the40’s. Judging by the chronology of the photos I posted.

Caption and comments on the “Memories of growing up or living in Mexico, MO.” Facebook page photo I just posted, claim the theatre’s previous names were the Orpheum, Rialto then Rex.

Spelling should be changed from Theater to Theatre per the 1984 photo posted by Lost Memory on 05/16/09.

DavidZornig commented about Centre Theatre on Dec 23, 2013 at 1:49 am

Theatre name spelling should be changed from Center to Centre. Buildings in the 1961 photo I just added also matched the current Google Street View that previously served as the overview image.

DavidZornig commented about Rush Theatre on Dec 1, 2013 at 5:27 am

The above address is incorrect. The Rush Theatre was located at 874 N. Wabash, not Rush. Conners Park has been a park since 1848. Google Conners Park on the www.ChicagoParkDistrict.com website for it’s history. The Alley, Rat Fink, Scotch Mist & Candy Store listed above were also all at the Wabash address. A photo of the Candy Store in 1976 can be found on a search of the Candy Store name, Chicago and the year on a website called Gapers Block.

Please delete this image. It is a repeat. Photo is from Flickr and actually courtesy of another. There is a clearer version of it in the comments section.

DavidZornig commented about Cinema Theater on Nov 21, 2013 at 1:54 am

I ran into an old friend recently who told me a cool story. He worked at the Cinema in the early `70’s when “Le Boucher”(The Butcher) played there several times. He was instructed by Mr. Usher to go up on a ladder and touch up the red paint on the marquee. Before he could finish, the can fell to the sidewalk and splattered red paint everywhere. They tried to clean up as much as they could, but being oil base paint the turpentine could only do so much as to spread it around, in the time they had. Because of the film’s theme however, theater goers just assumed it was another of Oscar Brotman’s showman’s touch.

DavidZornig commented about Kedzie Theatre on Nov 14, 2013 at 6:52 am

I just added a 1933 photo of the side of the Kedzie Theatre. Poster boxes indicate theatre is spelled with an “e” at the end, and not as theater. Should be changed accordingly on the Overview. Photo source unknown.

Or CT could just go ahead fix this, since it’s been an issue for so long…

DavidZornig commented about Village Art Theatre on Oct 30, 2013 at 8:19 pm

I have read in the past that the auditorium and interior of the theatre were already gutted prior to the landmark designation. So it’s only the facade that will be protected at this point. BTW readers will not be able to open the above link as it is posted. This has been an issue ever since CT changed their website design.

DavidZornig commented about Oak Theatre on Oct 13, 2013 at 4:55 am

The address needs to be changed to 2000 N. Western. Check the 1993 flier I posted in the Photos Section. Several Chicago Tribune articles from 1992 also confirm the address.
