The comments above are all true. The station wagon out front belonged to my uncle William Fain Bales. In the lobby in the evening, his son, Chuck Tiere, and some other friends had a band and practiced there. Chuck (Steger police cheif) played clarinet, and Don Bales played drums.

I remember seeing the movie, “Orca” here in the 1970s. I also recall a showing of “Grand Theft Auto” (Ron Howard’s first directorial feature, I think). Fond memories. Here is some information I found elsewhere: Steger Theater, 16 East 34th Street, William Bales, proprietor. Fern Bales, his wife, helped him run the theater. She also worked at Steger Furniture Manufacturing Company in the 1960’s to 1970’s.

My uncle owned this theater and I worked the small concession area in the lobby. He also owned the Sauk Trail Drive In Theater in South Chicago Heights. The Steger Theater was only open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. It catered mostly to the children and families of Steger. I have fond memories.

Wow, I had no idea there was a theater down there. Any old photos or stories would be greatly appreciated.
