The semi-atmospheric Patio Theatre in the Portage Park neighborhood on the Northwest side of Chicago is facing the same dilemma as many other single screen venues: the cost of buying a digital projector. Here’s a link to their fundraising effort which includes some great photos of the building. Demitri Kouvalis and his sister did lots of decorating and other work to re-open. Their father, the long-time owner, recently passed away. The original installation 3/17 Barton theatre pipe organ remains but is currently unplayable.
