The Lake Theater's penultimate film in their yearlong celebration of their 75th anniversary is After The Thin Man. Throughout the year on the second Monday of each month, the Lake has screened a film that played in 1936 — the year the Lake opened for business. The series affords filmgoers a chance to see these movies on the big screen without commercials instead of at 2 a.m. on the commercial-filled small screen.
On April 11, 1936 the Lake Theatre opened in Oak Park with a single screen and a seating capacity of 1,750. Theaters were huge in those days long before today's much smaller multiplexes. The opening was surely a hot topic of conversation for Oak Parkers. Designed by Thomas Lamb, the Lake was a great example of the art deco style.
One of our resident film buffs (and art film advocate) Bill Higgins sent the following enticement to see Beasts of the Southern Wild, which continues its run at The Lake, where it was the second highest grossing film of the Labor Day weekend.
