      Daniel Pogorzelski

      Chicago, IL

This petition is to articulate opposition to a proposal by the Chicago Tabernacle Church to acquire and permanently alter the historic Portage Theater at Six Corners in Chicago.

This is a functioning movie theater and concert venue which serves the diverse neighborhoods of the Northwest Side of Chicago. The current tenant has invested more than $100,000 in the renovation and stewardship of this historic theater with deep roots in the Portage Park neighborhood of Chicago. We ask you to spread the word to preserve this local treasure for generations to come.

      This is a great classic theatre that has been an important part to Chicago for decades. It brings the community, especially film community together for memorable screenings, marathons and events.

      It gives independent artists and motivated people to bring inspiration, revenue and fun to the Chicago community. Loosing this theater would be loosing a great part of Chicago.
