That’s a damn shame.
The new owners of the New Regal/Avalon Theatre in Chicago are trying to reopen the theater as a performing arts center. They’ve launched a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter to raise the remaining $100,000 needed to open the theater.
You can contribute to the kickstarter campaign here:

I’m saying that person is wrong, and the auditorium is still there. You can see it clearly on google maps (dated September 2014) or just look up the job permits on the New York City Department of Building’s website. There are demolition permits, but they have not been approved yet, so nothing has been demolished yet.
The theater is still there. No construction work has started yet.
I’m not 100% sure but I seem to recall our tour guide mentioning that the projection room was stripped of all projection equipment.
It’s the correct address. It’s just the address of the auditorium.
Mark – Yes there is a community open house tour at the Kings on Feb 7th. You can find more info about it here: Open House at the Kings
