Amazing and so very sad. How does one get a tour?
A few years ago, my friend Steph got to go inside for banding the Peregrine Falcon chicks that hatched there. Here's the pics she got back then in 2007.http://www.flickr.com/photos/chicago_steph/sets/72157600264268667/
Awesome photos Johnny. Thanks for sharing!
There's an interesting article about Liza Minnelli cancelling at the Rialto in Joliet. "Minnelli’s performance was part of a benefit concert to raise funds for the theater’s Polish the Jewel of Joliet restoration campaign." It would nice if the Riviera hosted such benefits concerts until the theatre could be restored enough to host its own benefit concerts. http://triblocal.com/joliet/2010/10/15/liza-minnelli-cancels-show/
Johnny, thank you for sharing the link with the photos. Absolutely breathe-taking! If anyone has passed over the link, you are missing out on some of the greatest and grandest history of Uptown.
