Historic Theatres Featured in Art Exhibit
Anatomically Correct Art in Alternative Spaces presents "All The World's a Stage" at the Apollo Theatre at 2540 N. Lincoln Avenue. Artists take a historical look at Chicago-area theatres, both past and present, and explore the theatrical journey from vaudeville stages, through silent pictures, to talking motion pictures, and back full circle to live performances. There are views of the Fine Arts Building, the Palace (now the Cadillac Palace), the Auditorium, the Esquire, the Nortown, the Coronado (up north in Rockford), the Rialto (Joliet), the Century (now a shopping mall), and the Uptown. The exhibit runs through November 11, with a reception and silent auction on October 5.
