Thank you, and let's not re-elect an Alderman that would do this to our neighborhood in years to come.

Thanks Bill for the video. I still can vividly remember the days we fought hard to try and save the theater. It's amazing how long ago the demolition happened and yet still a hole in the ground just at we knew it was going to be. Great video! Thanks again....

Yes Kris,

We knew that if the Adelphi Theater was demolished, it would remain a hole in the ground.

Every one of our 10,000 petition signers also saw this horrible result looming.

But, Why did Alderman Joe Moore not have the foresight and common sense to predict this tragic outcome?

Who put the blinders on his eyes?
