I too saw “Night of the living dead” at the Irving, must have been in 68 or 69, gosh I was like 8? Very scary. But I thought the “Exorcist” at the Commodore (early 70’s?) was even more scary.
(I now reside at Stateville CC)
I saw the double-bill â€œLast house on the leftâ€ and â€œDonâ€™t look in the basementâ€ here sometime in the mid-70â€™s because I was in early HS at the time. The theatre was NOT on the corner of Belmont and Cicero where Walgreens is now, as someone said earlier, because that was the Luna Lounge, a very interesting dive that had much better days. That was closed then demolished not long ago, less than 10 years ago. The theatre was down the block a little ways from the bar, I think itâ€™s now the parking lot next to the senior home.
