 Eighty-two year old comedian Bob Newhart charmed a lobby full of reporters, camera men and old friends from the neighborhood where he grew up in Chicago at a press conference in the lobby of the Chicago Theatre today.  He was inducted into the Illinois Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame, received a city proclamation for “Bob Newhart Day in Chicago”, and heard Ald. Robert Fioretti read a proclamation for the theatre’s 90th birthday next week. Richard Sklenar represented THS and pointed out numerous THS Archive photos on permanent display in the lower lounge. He noted that the theatre looks great and has all new carpeting. Newhart stars at the Chicago tomorrow night.  (RS)
