To Joe Vogel. the milda theater was open well into the late 70’s. i lived in the projects that was located behind the theater.sometimes the rear door was left open and we would climb the fence and go in onto the stage. no one would be inside early on saturdays. but sadly i know who burnt the stage area down it was an accident. i refused to go in with that bunch.and that night it caught fire..i watched from my bedroom window. SAD very sad.
Can someone tell me when the last showing was @the Ramova month/YR. I no longer live in Chicago it’s been years since I’ve seen Chicago. the last time I believe I was @ the Ramova was 1974.
I lived in the projects on 31st and halsted. we had good times going to the ramova to see dracula, werewolf, frankenstein. then all Bruce Lee movies. i was the youngest of 3. Admission for me was 25 cents and for my brother and sister it was 50 cents. then it went up 25 cents more. but the memories are still there. we would have fun with other kids we see from school.( Armour School). it’s sad to see the ramova in it’s present condition. there were other old buildings on halsted that should’ve been saved also.back in the day Mayor Daley would always pass by the projects and i would be playing by the alley,he would say hay kid i would run to his car he would give me tickets to the ringling brothers circus i would pass them out in the projects.
