Latter today, we are headed to the Windy City with friend Doug (Happy Birthday :o) to see Devo.
Built by Fridstein and Company in 1926 for the movie theater chain of Bubliner and Trinz, it is a surviving example of a movie palace. It features ornate exterior and interior design work, in a combination of the Classical Revival and Italian Renaissance styles. It could seat over 2,900 moviegoers, and also has storefronts facing the streets. The theater is currently used as a live music venue.
As a movie palace originally, even if you double the movie attendance to 6,000, that is still a cozy concert experience. We have had great luck with Chicago concerts and I am sure this one will keep our string going.
Going to get there a couple of hours before the doors open and get a burger and a beer, or something similar, then head on over. We will be driving back tonight, so most likely no details until tomorrow.
