Wilson Avenue Theatre, Wilson, Uptown Chicago
This is probably my favorite image in my collection. It is of the Wilson Avenue Theatre, now a TCF Bank, on Wilson near the northeast corner of Broadway. (You can see a bit of the Uptown/Wilson El Stop in the lower left corner).
The image below, captured from Google maps, shows the same stretch of Wilson. The theatre/bank is the only building left.
I have heard rumours--unconfirmed--that an entertainment company wants to buy the bank and renovate it as a small theatre space. Can anyone confirm this?
