The Coronet did become the home of Northlight for a few years.

So, WHY don’t they refurbish all those lights???

Why doesn’t the Chicago light all the lights adorning the building?

A watchman let me into the place. It is completely gutted. Nothing but an empty cave. If someone is looking to build a theatre, except for the exterior ornamentation, they will be starting from square 1. Sad.

There is a new facebook page “Fans of Chicago’s Historic Patio Theatre”. Join it.

Wasn’t there a theatre in Fort Atkinson named “The Fort”? It was just off Main Street.

Patiomike,

As I mentioned above, I am in real estate development. I have had a conversation with Alex and am working with a group seriously interested in the revitalization of The Patio. I would like to write to you with a few questions off this sight and if you would be so kind as to consider that, please contact me at

My thanks,
Michael

Is the sign still under the clocktower or was it removed first?

Found the number. It doesn’t work. Any other suggestions?

There is now a gaping hole at the Nortown procenium. I’m very concerned for the Patio and the Ramova. Any word on movement with these places?

I stopped by on Friday since the wall is open to take a few photos of the interior from out on the street. Only a part of the house left structure and a bit of the procenium remain. I will try to post them. Someone angrily asked me to leave.

I saw the bulldozers inside this past week. It’s going, going, gone.
Just sad.

Patiomike, what is you connection with the Patio? Thanks for your suggestion about the number on the office. Actually, I stopped by the place tonight before I saw your post. As mentioned above, I’m sad to say it looks like the marquee has been hit by a couple trucks. Most of the neon is gone. At some point all the bulbs were removed from the underside of the marquee as well, not sure why.

I am in real estate. My interest is related to some clients who are interested in acquiring some theatres to create a chain of classic cinemas.

I’ll go back and look for the number. Thanks.

The lights, constantly on, are slowly dying. So sad.

I was in it the other day. It is a disaster. The seats are gone. What remains is a crumbling shell. The outside is salvagable.

Is the Patio currently for sale/rent?

What ever happened to the plans with Griffin Theatre Company and the other proposal to turn it into an arts center/live-film theatre?

I saw Arsenic and Old Lace in the ‘80’s. The seats, well everything, was tiny.

You can see the gargoyles that held up the marquee on the Lincoln Ave side.
