The Boyd is Not the Only One
No one ever said that reviving the Boyd Theater would be easy.Or that Philadelphia was the only city trying to breathe new life into a great, Golden Age movie palace. But Chicago is using a novel approach to save its 4,000-seat Uptown Theater. As Lynn Becker at ArchitectureChicago Plus reports, supporters have filmed a documentary about the building and are now selling the DVD. It's a start. Philadelphia, by the way, has four great theaters on its to-save list: the Boyd, the Uptown (above), the Royal and the Metropolitan Opera House.
