Just added a screen shot from “Driving Miss Daisy” with the 7 Stages mocked up as the Rialto. The Variety Playhouse is just beyond it.

The links for the before and after renovation photos are all dead. But I added a photo that appears to be before. The horizontal sign above the box office and marquee overhang appear to be the same.
Duplicate, Admins. please remove.
Wow. I’m pretty dialed into the classic car community, and I hadn’t even heard of this. Must have been piss poor promotion in advance. My buddy has the replica Graffiti Deuce Coupe. He could have been hired to park out front. Even Candy still does personal appearances with enough notice. (Music Box would have probably had both.) The big Eli’s show was out on Forest Preserve Drive today too. So they were never gonna siphon off that crowd. Sounds like they just didn’t know what they were doing. Thanks for the heads up.
You would have to copy and paste it into your browser, starting from the end of the link so my sentence above it doesn’t highlight.
Or just scroll back to 08/06/07 in the comments, and click on the link HowardBHass posted originally that says Behind The Gap.
