The Funkiest Hall of All — Dave Hoekstra writes in the Chicago Sun-Times
“Chuck Berry is 84 years old, which means he is one year younger than the Congress Theater, where he collapsed during a New Year’s Day concert.
The Congress, 2135 N. Milwaukee, was designed as a movie palace heavy on Italian Renaissance style. Furnishings were done by Marshall Field & Co.
That was a long time ago . . . . . . . . . .”
