Their clients may have been. These ladies were engaged in what is referred to as: “The world’s oldest profession.”

The building still stands. Now known as the Midwest Apartments, offering subsidized low to moderate income rental units. When I worked in the neighborhood in the ‘50s, the Midwest was an SRO hotel with long-term guests. These included a number of professional ladies who would meet their clients upstairs for services.

We walked by this theatre earlier in the week. There is plywood covering the Washington Street entrance and some kind of construction work going on inside. The map is way off. A more accurate address would be 139 W Washington.

The manager of the next door antique mall said that the theatre’s owner was a retired military vet who essentially runs it as a hobby. He sells books out of there and occasionally will host live musical performances. A current photo has been uploaded.

I met my first wife at the Holiday Ballroom on Halsted in 1966. The same operator also ran the north side Holiday Ballroom in the old Times Theatre on Milwaukee north of Lawrence.

Unless this theatre is being renovated for some kind of performance space, the status should simply be closed.
