Loew's Park Theatre
Today is the 95th anniversary of the opening of Loew's Park Theatre at 10209 Euclid Avenue in the Uptown Theatre District. The Park was designed by Thomas Lamb, who also did Loew's State at Playhouse Square which would open a few weeks later. During the 30's and 40's the park would usually day-and-date with Loew's Granada. Loew's sold the theatre to Associated Theatres in October 1954. The Park would close on November 10, 1957 and wa slater use das a church for a number of years. The theatre was vacant by the mid 1970's. In late 1976 my friend Russell and I spent a couple nights poking around in here. The theatre was razed in the spring of 1981.
