I remember Mr. Salkin. My grandmother was the candy lady at Jackson Park until it closed. She then went to the Avalon, then the Capitol and finally to the Chicago Theater. As my mom says, I grew up in a movie theater. So many wonderful memories and adventures! I saw Hit the Deck 21 times. Mr. Salkin gave me a autographed picture of one of it’s stars, Ann Miller. When the Mummy played, they had a guy dressed up like the mummy walking the aisle. It still creeps me out.
