Whether it is the true opening date or not, the first ad for the Rush Theatre appeared in the Chicago Tribune on Friday, April 21, 1972. Featured movie was NICOLE, plus three featurettes and a cartoon.

The above address is incorrect. The Rush Theatre was located at 874 N. Wabash, not Rush. Conners Park has been a park since 1848. Google Conners Park on the www.ChicagoParkDistrict.com website for it’s history. The Alley, Rat Fink, Scotch Mist & Candy Store listed above were also all at the Wabash address. A photo of the Candy Store in 1976 can be found on a search of the Candy Store name, Chicago and the year on a website called Gapers Block.
