Bronzeville, August 2011 > Site of the Pickford Theater, 35th and Michigan

This building was recently demolished.


More info here:


"De La Salle Institute purchased the structure back in 2007 with plans to use it for a new academic center and theatre space.


But school officials became concerned after two Chicago firefighters were killed in December when a roof collapsed while they were battling a fire in the South Shore community. It happened at a similar type of building to the former Pickford Theatre."
