Located on Western Avenue at 63rd Street in the Marquette Manor neighborhood on the south side of Chicago.
The Hiway would have been another unremarkable theater built in the 30’s except for the original murals on the wall. The original murals contained many transportion related themes including airplanes, ships, trucks and railroads.
In the early 60’s, the Hiway was also used by the Chicago Savings and Loan Association on alternate Saturday mornings for a free show for local children. Parents had to stop at the S & L (a block away from the Hiway) to pickup the tickets.
When renovated in the mid-60’s, the murals were painted over with an ghastly yellow paint. In the late 60’s, the Hiway was converted to all adult move format.
