A new online catalog of theatre architecture of the 1920s-1940s is now available (PRESS RELEASE). “The CAPC collection focuses primarily on theatres in Illinois with additional negatives representing theatres in Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Wisconsin, New York, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. It includes photographic images taken by the firm for architects and builders. The collection includes approximately 1,000 negatives mostly from the 1920s to 1940s of approximately 250 theatres. Funding from the Donnelley Foundation allowed over 1,000 negatives from the Chicago Architectural Photographing Co. Collection to be scanned, creating high quality digital master files.”
