The Vic Theatre — home to vaudeville, porn and now rock ’n’ roll — turns 100 

The early Vic crew explored the old theater like something from “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
The staff discovered a lounge with a trap door, above the opera boxes, stage right. “You would access the room through a ladder that dropped down from the box,” Frey said. “So after the show you could go up to this little room and get a drink. You could maybe get 20 people in there. Walt never redid that. There were catacombs that go out and [off property] where they kept their stashes.”
Wiggins pointed to one of the tiny catacombs by the boiler room. “This goes under the Sheffield sidewalk,” he said. “All the sidewalks were vaulted when they built these theaters. The mobsters used them as escape routes.”
Similar tunnels exist between the Aragon Ballroom and the Green Mill jazz club in Uptown.

I love labyrinthine and paranoid century old construction.
