Architect was apparently a “W. Ohlaber”

Ok, it’s William Ohlaber. Sorry for the confusion.

most peculiarly even though not used as a theatre per se for what—85 years? the building owners recently restored the Grayland Theatre insignia, which sits very prominently directly over the retail establishment name, longtime 6-corners big&tall menswear store Rasenick’s. this can be seen in certain photos, but really stands out when you drive by in person. i’d like to see others still extant to follow suit. fluevog/wicker park theatre would be an excellent candidate
