I remember when I was a kid and we went to St. Brendan School just north and west of here. It was Carr’s department store then. Kids weren’t allowed in. I was just curious as to what was in there because I’d never been inside. When it closed in the 80’s, my bestfriend and I went in there in its final days. It looked like the set of a haunted movie. When I was a kid, I never realized that it had been a movie theater.

I loved this theatre as a child with my big sister. I went to Sacred Heart School at 70th & May. We would walk to 63rd Street and Halsted often. The theatre had live swans in the lobby ponds. Carr’s was a great store – it was like Maxwell Street inside a building. It had everything. I bought my first bongo drums and white bucks shoes with a snap. That would have been around 1959-60.

I lived at 64th and Peoria in the late Forties, not far from the Southtown, and many other theaters around 63rd and Halsted. The swans, ducks, turtles, and large gold fish in the pond was my Disney World growing up. All of my homes have always had large Koi ponds as influenced by this wonderful memory.
