Mr. Holubow took more photos that day, and some of them are shown in February's Chicago Magazine, accompanying an article by Roger Ebert about Chicago's once-grand movie palaces.
We recommend you take a look at the Holubow photo slide show. There've been a lot of promises and hopes attached to restoring the theater, ever since it closed its doors in the 1980s. Sometimes it seems an impossible fantasy, other times we think it may just happen. Time will tell, but we remain hopeful.
The photos by Eric Holubow are here. Enjoy.
