Should Deerbrook’s Theaters Become Landmark’s Temporary Home?
With Highland Park’s Landmark Renaissance Theaters closing March 8 for renovation, should the movie house make Deerbrook its temporary home?
Highland Park’s Landmark Renaissance Theaters will close March 8 for three months of renovation which will include stadium seating and a dining option with alcohol, according to a source affiliated with the company.
The three month hiatus leaves patrons of independent films with the option of going to Evanston or Chicago for that style movie. Could there be a more local option?
There was a four-screen theater in the Deerbrook Mall that closed over 20 years ago but it is still there. A visit to the back of the mall will reveal a mesh gate in front of the former theater entrance enabling people to see the old concession stand.
