Location: Lake St. and 27th

This building once housed Freeman’s Department Store inside the Coliseum Building. It opened in 1917, and closed on 1975 with the commercial decline on Lake Street and the growth of national chains and suburban shopping. During the 70’s the basement was rented to notable tenants like The Suburbs and Citizen.

Sing-along!

Location: Riverview Theater

The Riverview Theater was built in 1948. The Sound of Music original Broadway production opened in 1959. The movie hit the screen in 1965. Seems so appropriate for this movie to be enjoyed at the beautiful Riverview Theater in sing-along style. The Riverview has many special screenings throughout the year. Brat pack themes, Hitchcock, and Christmas movies to name a few. Did I mention the best popcorn around?
