Thanks for the useful information. I am still hoping for a picture of the Commodore…the earlier the better!

Hi Paul,
I went to Lane Tech in the mid 70’s and from that Neighborhood. I would like to get a photo (JPG or whatever..) of the Commodore Theater. I remember seeing a science fiction thriller with Adam West (Batman) when I was a kid at the Comodore.

I went to see the ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ there in the mid-seventies. I didn’t know anything about the theater at the time.

I remember going there with a date in my late teens. We were the only ones there and it started to snow…

What was the movie? Who knows…

I remember going to see ‘Trog’ there on a Saturday matinee. The movie is Joan Crawford’s sad ending to her career in 1970. The theater quietly disappeared and a Mobil replaced the entire corner right off of the Kennedy Expressway. I don’t remember much of the facade except seeing the ‘IRVING’ sign from far away on the Irving bus. Across Irving Park Blvd. was the famous Buffalo’s Ice Cream, also gone.

I lived at Troy and Cullom, three blocks away between 1966 and 1971. I disagree with Richard G. as I was ten years old and the interior had a mysterious architecture that was gothic and spooky. I think that it had a closed balcony. I watched some great scary double features. Too bad it couldn’t be saved!
