NEW REGAL, WILL ROGERS THEATRES NAMED TO ILLINOIS 10 MOST ENDANGERED LIST

2011 “Ten Most” List from Landmarks Illinois

“This year’s list of the state’s most threatened sites was announced today at a press conference at the State Capitol in Springfield. From a mid-20th century hospital to a former settlement house, an Art Deco Main Street theater to a Moorish Chicago movie palace, no building type is immune from today’s poor economic climate.  . . . .”

 Full story at   http://www.landmarks.org/ten_most.htm     includes the New Regal (Avalon), Chicago (THS photos used in this listing),  the Will Rogers, Charleston, IL, the Alphonso Ianelli Studio in Park Ridge, IL (he did interior designs for Pickwick Theatre, Park Ridge), and the Turner Hall, Belleville, IL.
