We started this blog in order to inform family and friends we don't see often of the things we are up to here in Chicago. So, we've decided to highlight a few of our favorite places every now and then. A new favorite for us: the Davis Theater, located right around the corner from us on the main drag of Lincoln Square. We had been to the Davis once before, but John being the movie theater connoisseur he is, promised we would never be back because it didn't meet his standards. The place certainly isn't new. It evokes feelings of the old Annex 7 or Fox 4 in Tulsa. Old, kind of moldy-smelling -- definitely not the huge-screen multiplexes we are used to frequenting. But, I finally talked him into returning, and I'm happy to say John is now a Davis devotee. I would like to say it's because he has gotten over his movie theater snobbishness, but I think it has more to do with the powdered popcorn toppings they offer. You can get nacho cheese, white cheddar, or caramel. We got white cheddar, and it was delish! What's even better is that the concessions don't cost an absolute fortune. They don't take credit cards, but like I said, they haven't quite made it to the 21st century.
So, I'm happy to say that the Davis is now on our list of haunts.
