THE LAST PICTURE SHOW at BELVIDEREFormer Belvidere Mall Cinema
Belvidere Discount Mall
2107 Belvidere Road – Waukegan, IL
April 6, 2019

[jonrevProjects] anchors the inaugural Wauk the Mall art walk at Belvidere Discount Mall with a photo gallery feature under the most-unique of settings: the former Belvidere Mall Cinema, a virtually-untouched General Cinema theater of the mid-twentieth century that originally shuttered in 2003 and had been mothballed ever since.

Printed work from most of our projects was featured, alongside artifacts found throughout the theater and the debut of a special eight-piece print series on abandoned movie theaters (“Cinema”).

The mid-century lobby and one of the theaters were opened to public tours for the first time in sixteen years.

[jonrevProjects] thanks Belvidere Discount Mall management and Austin Cantu for making this unique dive into lost local history possible.
