I thought the facade may have been changed.
It didn’t match the other 2 Gatlinburg theatres.
I’ll go ahead and delete it.

DavidZornig commented about Logan Theatre on Aug 25, 2016 at 5:27 pm

This is interesting. I added a 1908 photo of a prior Logan Theatre. Located at 2164 N. Milwaukee, changed to 2564 N. Milwaukee during the 1909 Chicago Street Re-Numbering Plan. Photo courtesy of the Logan Square Preservation Facebook page. I don’t know if it was a film or live theatre. But it would deserve it’s own page if it was.

P.S., the new page already had the 1981 photo. I just added the photo and history credit source. Drive-Ins.com never updated other than the photo. It would have been the same info anyway.

Cool. Will do. I also originally tried updating the Drive-Ins.com page for the 53 Auto-Vue. If that worked I’ll post a link. I think that was were I got the original car capacity.

Well, apparently the Admins removed the 53 Auto-Vue marquee photo from 1981 I added. Not sure why.
