Here is a 1991 Chicago Reader article courtesy of Tim O'Neill, about the failed attempt to revive the Hi-Way as a performing art center.
The Hi-Way was torn down about 5 years later.
Potential venue for hologram concerts now.
Thanks. Apparently it does not have it’s own CT page.

The Music Box Theatre to the right of the Fox, is neither the former Liberty Theater nor the other Music Box listed in Portland on CT.
Any ideas of what it’s former name might have been, so I can post the photo on that page too?

This threare suffered damage when a boiler underneath exploded. It happened during a mitinee for kids. My brother Pete and I awere there when the explosion occurred. It was so loud and the floor raised. We were terrified as this was our first matinee ever. I believe it happened about 1948 or 1949. We were about pre-teen at the time.
There was another Elks Theater on Brady Street in Du Bois.
I have a 1926 post card image. I will add it to CT when I can find more info on it.
