THE FORMER PRENTICE WOMEN’S HOSPITAL
Join Essanay Studios Chicago as they screen the documetary "The Paramount", a film that explores the value of culturally significant heritage buildings that are nearing extinction in every North American city. The Paramount follows the story of one man from a divided community as he tries to gain support to save the community cinema. The Paramount Theatre is slated for demolition, unless a plan is put in place to raise the necessary funds to purchase and revive the building. Activist Mike McDonald crosses the continent searching for answers and hoping for a new understanding of the value of culturally significant buildings.
