This past Sat. 02/17/01, I helped a group of people in removing the old seats from the Genesee Theater in Waukegan, IL.
This is the first step in a complete renovation of the theater to bring it back to what it was when it opened on Dec. 25, 1927.
The question came up as to what would be the first show held at the theater when it reopens on Dec. 25, 2002m which will be 75 years from it's first opening date.
My suggestion was to show "The Horn Blows at Mignight"
Are there still prints out there that can be rented? And does anyone know where "The Horm Blows at Midnight" first opened? I thought it was at the old Genesee Theater.
