The Commador on Irving. I remember watching a double bill. "Batman" & "What a way to go" I thought I would go to hell because the later was an X or R rating according to the "New World" raining guide. I was just a kid.

I've asked this before, Does anyone remember a cafateria downtown called the 'Forum'. I remember as a kid, it was huge (maybe not) I was a kid and my dad would treat us there on Sunday's. All kinds of people were there. I was told it burnt down and a fireman was killed. I thought it was on madison or wabash. Anyone know for sure. It must have been the early 60's.

Captain 54: The golden cue has been there as long as I can remember. Your probably right that it may have been a grocery store before. I remember it as the Golden Cue in the mid 60's.

Thanks way Out. I was behind the bar when he shoots at me. Another actor was reading the paper when He came in. I had about 45 seconds of face time on this scene. It was interesting. I am NOT an actor.

Gerties was at 59/Kedzie. They filmed there for the TV show, "Crime story" with Dennis Ferina (sic). I had a Bit Part there inside Gerties working behind the soda fountain when someone shoots at me and hits all of the sunday dishes. The ice cream was great but you could smell the sewer gas back-up.

Grew up there. Montrose & sacremento was SINCLARE & the N/W corner of California/Montrose was a gas station briefly, then a mechanic. It may have been Bulko. I rememeber The gas station on the west side of Pulaski just north of Montrose. It was the one that had the TIGER in your tank. (whoever that was?) Bulko may have been on Montrose & Albany.
