I remember when I was a kid and we went to St. Brendan School just north and west of here. It was Carr’s department store then. Kids weren’t allowed in. I was just curious as to what was in there because I’d never been inside. When it closed in the 80’s, my bestfriend and I went in there in its final days. It looked like the set of a haunted movie. When I was a kid, I never realized that it had been a movie theater.

I loved this theatre as a child with my big sister. I went to Sacred Heart School at 70th & May. We would walk to 63rd Street and Halsted often. The theatre had live swans in the lobby ponds. Carr’s was a great store – it was like Maxwell Street inside a building. It had everything. I bought my first bongo drums and white bucks shoes with a snap. That would have been around 1959-60.
