Astute readers will remember our tour of the Davis Theater with Multiplex web comic author Gordon McAlpin. Last week McAlpin showcased – in tremendous detail – the results of his theater tour over two days of strips.
The comic is centered on a multiplex in a near north Chicago suburb and two of the characters have a hobby of visiting old Chicago theaters. Multiplex characters have previously visited the Patio Theater in Portage Park.
Not surprisingly, the comic character’s interests are pretty close to McAlpin’s, who is a member of the Theater Historical Society of America and has a keen interest in documenting old theaters like the Music Box Theater and?the derilict Uptown Theater.
