Welcome to our nostalgic little chat group.
Hi, Jackye! My Dad was Hy Perelgut, who coached at Von in the early 50s. Did you know him?
Thanks so much for the tip on the B&K book. Just ordered it through Amazon (one of their affiliates had it for 12.85). I’m still looking for a really great pictures showing the Terminal marquis looking east along Lawrence Avenue. I know it exists, but I can’t find it anywhere.
Hi, Mike! Thanks for the note. My Dad was the basketball coach at Von back in the 50s. Brings back lots of memories. I too remember the 25c shows, I used to get 25c for the show and 15c for popcorn or a Coke and candy. Incredible! Take care …
The best photo I’ve ever seen was hanging in a little deli on Clark Street, near the Century. It closed in 1988 or 89, and I was too late finding someone who could help me get the photo. I think it was from the Chicago Hisytaorical Society, or perhaps the old Bettman Archives. I’ve been trying to track it down ever since. Good luck!
PS — I agree about the stores, they don’t seem to have any interiors. Massive renovations?
Neat! I grew up at Kimball and Ainsle, a block north of Lawrence. Went to Hibbard grade school. Are you from the same neighborhood? Thanks …
Hi, Brian! Can’t really help with the question, however entrances can and have been moved. Good luck!
Thank you for finding this picture. It’s not the one I originally saw, but it’s perfect!
I am seeking a photograph of Lawrence Avenue featuring the Terminal Theater, circa 950, black and white, facing west down Lawrence. I know it exists — it used to be in a Clark Street restaurant, now closed. Any help?
