Wow. As usual, thanks again guys. Here’s another one I never knew about.
Looks like the exterior had a tough go of it for being only 30 years old.

That 3 columned, balcony like inset is reminiscent of the old Lexington/New Michigan Hotel facade. Wonder if those X panels were ones that once opened. One of our past presidents supposedly once spoke from the one at the Lexington. Another one that along with this theater, if it could have hung on, would have made an awesome renovation.

Here is a photo of the Vendome shortly prior to its demolition.
