Last weekend was another great weekend for the Chicago Photo Booth Company. We were at Lincoln Hall for a concert, a red solo cup party, baby shower, 16th birthday party and did 2 fundraisers in downtown Chicago. The photo booth as one client put it, was HUGE success. We always appreciate positive feedback. We absolutely loved being at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. It is located at 2424 N Lincoln Avenue, the building which houses Lincoln Hall first opened in 1912 as the Fullerton Theatre. It has quite a history! Since then, the building has housed a garage and machine shop, the Crest Theatre and, most recently, the 3 Penny Cinema. In 1934, FBI sharpshooters were stationed atop what is now Lincoln Hall to prevent John Dillinger’s escape from the Biograph Theatre across the street on the night he was killed. After 20 years as owner/operators of Schubas Tavern at 3159 N. Southport in Chicago, Mike and Chris Schuba opened Lincoln Hall in this historic building. “We’ve been looking three years for a building that would create a human-scale, intimate experience where we can put the music first,” said Chris Schuba in 2009 as he walked the dust-covered mezzanine while construction workers welded, sawed and hammered around him. We were very excited to work with Paws because we really believe they have a good mission. Paws Mission is to build No Kill communities – starting with a No Kill Chicago – that respect and value the life of every cat and dog. To end the overpopulation of homeless animals through solutions, practices and education. To transform animal welfare by setting higher standards in the way animals are treated and developing a sustainable, solutions-based model. You can see from the photo booth pictures they truly believe this! We love dogs in our photo booths! Check out a great organization that we were happy to work with this week. SitStayRead improves literacy skills and fosters a love of learning in at-risk children. Founded in 2003, SitStayRead improves reading fluency, makes reading fun, and inspires children to become lifelong readers. Using a curriculum designed with the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Center for Literacy, trained volunteers and certified dog teams bring much needed reading help to children, ages 7-9, in Chicago inner-city schools and community facilities. Our photo booths are always busy and we’d love to be busy doing an event for you! Give us a call and check out our website. We were founded in Chicago but have expanded to Milwaukee, Ohio, and Indianapolis.
