As the 88th Oscars approach, we wanted to highlight the Egyptian Theater and the Normal Theater, old venues which have both been restored to their former glory, thanks to non-profit ownership. 

We'll discuss the history of these two theaters and why people should visit, rather than solely going to their nearest megaplex.
