I have about 50 movie programs from the Elmo theater my grandparents collected from about 1936 through 1938. I’ve uploaded a sample of one to the photo section. Note the “free stainless steel kitchenware” promotion that was common at the time.

RickB;You are correct, the photograph above is not this Elmo Theatre. It is a photograph of the Elmo Theatre, St. Elmo, IL, which has its own page on Cinema Treasures #7601

If this theater was torn down for an expressway built in the 1950s then the cars in the photos must be capable of time travel. Doesn’t really look like Chicago either. I like the marquee though. Which Elmo is that, really?
