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 20, 2013 at 5:54 pm

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 13, 2013 at 10:52 pm

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…

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.

I just added a photo of the Palace Theatre I found on Facebook. The marquee matches the one in Joe Vogel’s postcard image posted on 04/13/13.

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.

DavidZornig commented about Odeon Theatre on Oct 11, 2013 at 8:31 pm

I just added a 1948 photo of the Odeon as the State Theatre. State should be added as an additional name for the Odeon.

DavidZornig commented about Estacada Theater on Oct 11, 2013 at 7:44 pm

I just added an early `50’s photo of the Estacada as the Broadway Theater. The building is identical to the present day Google view that disappeared when I added what is now the first photo. Broadway should be added as another name to the Estacada description. (I also misspelled Estacada with a “c” in my description with the photo.)

I just added another photo from 1958. The Arkansas Capitol Building can be seen at the far end of the street in both photos.

I meant to say the same Virginia Theatre & buildings as in Ken’s 1937 photo posted on 8/26/06.

Redlands Footlighters I meant to type. Sure wish there was a way to correct comments on CT…

According to the Redlands Footlanders' website, “The Curious Savage” opened at their new home the Grove Theatre in 1952. The above photo is opening night, and is likely the original source for the photo.

FYI, there are never before seen photos of the RKO Rochester on a website called www.RochesterSubway.com Go to the “Select Month” feature, and click on “October 2012”. Then scroll down until you see the photos.

I’m unable to attach the link since CT changed their page format.

RSH1967, the B.F. Goodrich building bnehind the Shell in your photo is still standing too. But it is a Goodyear dealer today.

DavidZornig commented about State Theater on Oct 3, 2013 at 2:12 pm

I forgot to add the name of the person who posted the 3 B&W 1948 photos, that I re-posted in the Photos Section above. They were originally posted by Crystal Cheeseman Roling Porter to the “You know you’re from Freeport if…” Facebook page.

DavidZornig commented about Movieland on Sep 24, 2013 at 6:22 pm

I should add “Debut” closed after only 5 performances because of poor reviews. But even if it was the last live show as the Holiday, it was still 1956. But early enough in the year that there is likely little record of it other than her website.

DavidZornig commented about Movieland on Sep 24, 2013 at 6:06 pm

I just added a photo of the Holiday Theatre, with the live show “Debut” starring Inger Stevens on the marquee. According to her website it opened there 2/22/56. Which means live theater lasted one more year than the 1955 date in the Overview.
