  A building that has Chicago written all over it--literally. It's gratifying that the theater survived the decline of the Loop movie palaces to be restored as a venue for live performances. Not that that role is entirely new; even in its glory days as a movie house at least into the 1950's, the program often included big-name live acts.And of course the landmark sign provides an unmistakable sense of place, forming an exclamation point for many views of State Street. Nobody ever looks at old vacation photos with this building in frame and asks, "Now, where did we snap that?"
