My love for music, movies and the city of Chicago inspired my theater collection. I hope you can appreciate the detail, color selection and perspective work on the piece.
Chicago Music Box. Opened in 1929, a time when the movie palaces in downtown Chicago each had seating capacities of around 3,000 people. Theatre Architecture magazine noted in 1929 that the theatre "represents the smaller, though charming and well equipped, sound picture theatre which is rapidly taking the place of the 'deluxe' palace." The opening film was Mother’s Boy starring Morton Downey, Beryl Mercer, and a young Brian Donlevy.
