Tom 365 – February 24, 2014


Built in the 1920’s and closed down in the 1980’s, the Ramova Theater has managed to elude the wrecking ball for more than 20 years. But all attempts to save and revive this historic building have failed.

It’s sister theater on the north side of Chicago, The Music Box, is a thriving independent art house. Can the Ramova be saved in the same way, or has time done too much damage to the old building?
