Any more information on this theatre?
Does any one know the “style” of this theatre.
Thank You .
A few “COMMENTS” about the new LaSalle Bank Theatre…..
I just finshed waching the 190n special on it and here are my comments.
I like the new paint i think that thay did a good job in the auditorium, The seats look soft and comfortable, I do not care for the top of the marquee from my point of view the top of the marquee looks like the grill off of a old car. And i ask this question….
All through the 190n show they kept on saying the the Majestic,Shubert LaSalle Bank Theatre or what ever you want to call it was the oldest theatre at time of compleation is this true?
I mean what about Adler and Sulivans “AUDITORIUM THEATRE” (50 E.Congress PWK.) That whole bulding the hotel and the theatre were compleated in somthing like 1888-1889. Can some one please make some sence out of this for me?
Also i have to ask this question,what is going on with the “Handheld ticket scanners” i my oppnion the scanners are to be used in a venue like a ballpark or some other large venue not in a theatre certany not in a theatre that seats something like 2,000 people.
Just my POV THANK YOU for you time and space.
What was so record setting about the deal?
What other theatres did the Ascher Brothers have?
I am just sorry that it had to be taken down.:(
Thank you for you time.
All that i have to say is thank you that makes sence to me now.
Thank you for clearing that up.:)
Does any one know if and or whare i can get more information on this theatre? Thanks!
I have to agree with the post left above.
Another thing that I think should have eather ben reworked or just left out of the plan was the" art piece" that sticks out from the side of the bulding i don`t know if it is just me or the fact that it is new but i agree that thay could have done the config a little bit better maybe thay could have had a marquee with something like the “Radio City Music Hall” has in New York, i mean that it is(in my POV) the best of the two worlds.Information and Art. “Form follows function”! Thank You.
If this is the one that i think it is i an sad to report that it has ben replaced with of all things a Walgreens Pharmacy between the main part of the store and the parking lot it takes up the whole corner.
Can you explane to me what a “Fully automated theatre” is ?
Does that mean that a computer runs the projector?
Or does it have something to do with the consesions?
Just would like to know,thank you for you time.:)
Does any one have any more information on this theatre?
Like,what “CHAIN” it was part of or was it a vaudville house that became a movie house?
One thing that i like about RIVER EAST 21 is that is very easy to get to but the one thing that i realy like is the “STATIUM SEATING"
i can not tell you how many times that i have payed good money after bad and got that one person or couple that just has to sit right in front and block the screen! Thank You to who ever was the one responsable for puting the statium seats in to the final plans.
Well all that i have to say is thank you.
And it is nice to hear that at least the name of the Majestic is going to be used in some form. I have not realy looked at the marquee that well i will have to look for it later or to night when 190n does the show on it,i have heard that the marquee is “something to see”! the reason i think is to get more people over there becuse if you can recall eather in winter or when the weather is bad it is very dark around their and thay want people to be able to find it.
Just a Thought. Thanks
Thank You For Your Time.
Thank you for explaning now that makes it a bit more lucid to me.
One other thing,do you know if the first name was even thought to be used? The Palace , and The Orential have their “first” names in on the marquee just wondering why the Majestic name or for the mater the shubert names were not kept?
The show 190n is going to have from what i have ben told a whole show about the theatre to be aired on Sunday June 11th 2006 @ 1035pm(cdt) right after the 10:00pm News cast the show will be named…..
“190 North goes inside the LaSalle Bank Theatre” from what i was told and from what i have seen in the prevews thay are going to go “behind the curtain” type of thing. Thanks for your time if you can watch please do it. thanks again.
Can you tell me what the diferance between a “restoration” and a “historically sensitive renovation”?
Also what is your take on the name “ The LaSalle Bank Theatre”?
Sorry if you go to WWW.ABC7Chicago.com it is the 5th tab over marked as “ON ABC7” then it is the 8th show down. Thank You for your time.
I can not agree with you more, i recall the balc. You had to contend with the miles and miles of lighting and video cable there simple was no place or way to hide it,so you had to sit in the seat and hoped that you did not kick the cables by mistake or you might upset the show. But that is just one of the many things that thay fixed.
If i recall right 190north did a show about it. Go to WWW.ABC7Chicago.com or go to 190North.com and look under “Archives” or if you prefer send them an e-mail thay are very good at returning with and answer.
Yes, it just did the news reported that the owners of the offices did not want it to be opened for fears that the smell of the popcorn would upset the flow of the work day. And that if the store got the O.K. that no one would be doing their job,that thay would be thinking about the popcorn and not the work. But i think that the County were the ones thet said OK and now the store is opened.
Thank You for the information that is ware i thought it was but i was not sure. Thanks Again!!
Has any one gone to the theatre since it opened it looks great from what the news and the T.V. spots show?
Can any one explane to me whare the Garrets Popcorn Store is at ?
The news reported that it was in the Orential, my question is…
whare is it, is in the acutal theatre or has it opened in the office part of the Orential Buld.If any one knows please post the answer
Thank You, now i understand now it makes sence.
I wish that all of the theatres that were in this area were sitll there. Good thing that we still have the Orential and the palace.
Thank You for your time.
Thank You For the information, can you tell me if their were any other theatres by the Garrick on the sight of the Goodman complex.

Was their a showing of one of the “New” starwars movies at this theatre. I think it was “a new hope”?
