Your Thoughts

There are two comments.

  Like many Chicagoans of my generation, I have fond personal memories of this rather kitschy former auditorium as the site of the annual Shrine Circus in the Fifties Like almost no Chicagoans of any generation, I have wry personal memories of trying to explain to a party of much younger visitors in the early 1980's that, no, the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine were not actually Muslims. In any event, I'm grateful for Bloomingdale's rather unlikely adaptive rescue of the sweet old monstrosity.
