Demolition is starting according to a photo my friend took earlier today.
According to Chicago’s Forgotten Synagogues book by Robert A. Packer, The name of the synagogue was Congregation Beth Israel Anshe Yanova (House of Israel, Men of Yanova).
The building is now the Third Baptist Church of Chicago. http://www.flickr.com/photos/zol87/4796931252/ http://www.movie-theatre.org/usa/il/chicago/IL%20Chicago%20City.pdf The Zip code should be 60643 and the Google street view map needs to be updated
According to Google Street View the facade behind where the marquee stood is still standing although the entrance has been modified. http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/2840/photos/5405/
