A song for the night: The heart of Paradise Theater: Styx - The Best Of Times
The Paradise Theatre was a Balaban and Katzmovie palace located in Chicago, Illinois, that opened in 1928. Located near the intersection of West Madison Street and Crawford Avenue (later Pulaski Road) on Chicago's West Side, the Paradise was never a terribly successful movie house. It was closed in 1956, like many theaters, and was demolished over the following two years.
The theater was later made somewhat famous by the Styx album Paradise Theater, a "concept album" with songs that followed along with the history of the theater from opening to closing.
