Description

High resolution Print* of the Biograph Theatre in Chicago. Designed by architect Samuel N. Crowen in 1914, the Biograph has many of the distinguishing characteristics of movie houses of the period, including a storefront-width lobby, recessed entrance, free-standing ticket booth, and canopy marquee. The building is finished with red pressed brick and white-glazed terra cotta.

On July 22, 1934, after attending the film Manhattan Melodrama with brothel madam known as Anna Sage and Polly Hamilton, John Dillinger was shot dead outside the Biograph by FBI agents led by Melvin Purvis, when he attempted to pull a pistol and flee into the crowd after he saw them. Dillinger's whereabouts had been leaked to the FBI by Cumpănaş under the threat of deportation back to her birthplace of Romania.

In July 2004, after 90 years as a movie theater under various owners, Chicago's Victory Gardens Theater announced it had purchased the Biograph for use as a live venue. The theater was completely renovated by architect Daniel P. Coffey, who constructed a proscenium-thrust stage and seating for 299 people. A grand staircase, which was part of the original structure, was restored to lead up to the building's second floor, housing a studio theater seating 135 people. The $11 million project for the new theater, styled the Victory Gardens at the Biograph, was completed in the fall of 2006.

The facades of the theater and adjoining businesses were redressed to appear as they did in 1934 for the 2009 film Public Enemies.

This is a print of my original drawing done with Japanese ink Super Fine Fountain Pen.
Printed on: White Canon Ink Jet Fine Art Paper "Museum Etching" (350 g).
Printer: Canon Pro 9000 Mark II.

You can mat and frame it or just directly pop it into a 4" x 4" frame.
It is also available at 5" x 5 and 8" x 8".

The print will be signed by the artist and a Certificate of Authenticity will be included!

*Please note that you are purchasing the print only.

The print is signed and dated. It will be shipped to you in a protective paper envelope, between two rigid pieces of cardboards to protect from bending.

- I will ship most orders within 3 business days after payment is received.
