Yep. The entrance was probably about where that new traffic light was put up at the far west side mall entrance on 95th street right next to the bar which has been there forever (including when the Starlight was still there). Speaking of memories of the Starlight and the Studio I remember seeing Jerry G Bishop, in person as the original Svengoolie, at the Studio on Halloween eve 1970. He was a DJ on either WLS or WCFL and also doubled as Svengoolie on channel 32 when they were just a fledgling station on UHF. They were not part of Fox at that time. They were WFLD (FieLD Communications). Man those were the days!

Yes. The entrance was north of 79th street on Harlem. Lots of fun between the Sheridan and the Starlight. I lived in Oak Lawn for 25 years and our little group mostly hung out at the White Castles at 95th & Cicero because we were part of the hot rodder scene (late 60’s thru mid 70’s). My most vivid memory about the Sheridan was the accident my friend had driving in. We were late and it was already dark and as you know once you entered the theatre parking lot you had to turn off your headlights and use the parking lights. He hit another car (lightly) which kinda spoiled the evening for him. As I remember it, Haunted Trails was at the corner of Cicero & SW Highway, where Hooters is now, before they moved to Burbank. Wish some of these things had never changed.
