'Chicago Seven' 2012: Preservation Society Releases Annual List Of Most Endangered Buildings (PHOTOS)

For the tenth year running, Preservation Chicago has compiled a list of the city's seven most endangered architectural treasures.

Called the "Chicago 7," the list is part of an effort to raise public awareness about landmark buildings, neighborhoods and architectural styles at risk of demolition or deterioration.

This year's list includes three Chicago hospitals and a nod to Chicago's many historic movie theaters, including the Portage Theater. Check out photos of all seven landmarks below:
