The tony Cacharel clothing store in the Bourse will close Jan. 7, a month before a major renovation is scheduled to begin at the historic shopping arcade in an effort to attract more tourists and middle-income shoppers. The store, which sells expensive French clothing, was one of the original tenants at the Bourse when it reopened in 1981 after a $20 million renovation by Philadephia-based Kaiserman Enterprises, the building's owner. "The Bourse is changing its image. We're the highest-end store at this point, and it seemed this was the right time to go, before the construction begins," said Patricia Cuddy, who has managed the shop for five years.

We can thank the '80s for confirming that jazz is the music of class. Locally, we can thank Zanzibar Blue for proving that Philadelphia can support a classy jazz club and restaurant. And for paving the way for another: The Blue Moon Jazz Club and Restaurant, a bistro that celebrated its grand opening Wednesday in the basement of the Bourse. The Blue Moon promises headliners every weekend and is aiming for a crowd that is even a bit more upscale than the Zanzibar - with cover charges (usually $20)

The Heartthrob Cafe, the place that did for nightclubs what Back to the Future did for movies, has decided that the '50s aren't forever. The club/ restaurant in the Bourse, on Fifth Street near Chestnut Street, has gotten a new look, a new menu and a new name: the Beverly Hills Bar & Grill. The club will throw a grand-opening bash Thursday to launch the new order, but those who can't wait can check things out this weekend. Owner Kelley Cordova says the place has a "totally new" look and feel, though music will continue to feature tunes from the '50s to the '70s.

Two electronic message signs by New York artist Jenny Holzer, installed in the Bourse as part of a sculpture exhibition staged in connection with the Constitution's bicentennial, have been temporarily shut down because of the messages they transmit. As a result of a disagreement between the management of the arcade and Collaborations Inc., the organization that arranged the exhibit, the signs were turned off Thursday on the orders of I. Jerome Milgrim, the Bourse's director of operations.

A theater facility closed for three years will reopen Sunday when Late Night Catechism moves from Society Hill Playhouse to the Bourse. The one-person comedy, in which a nun teaches a catechism refresher class for adults, will set up in the space that once housed the Actors Center Theatre in the basement of the Bourse at the corner of Fifth and Ranstead Streets. Tim Flaherty, general manager for the show, said the move from the rented Society Hill Playhouse was made in anticipation of a long Philadelphia run. Having the show in its own space, he explained, would both reduce costs and allow for the creation of a classroom environment.

Two electronic message signs by artist Jenny Holzer, installed in the Bourse as part of a Constitutional bicentennial sculpture exhibition, were turned back on yesterday after having been off for a week. The signs were ordered turned off Aug. 6 by I. Jerome Milgrim, director of operations at the Bourse, in a disagreement over the size of disclaimer signs that absolved the Bourse of responsibility for the content of Holzer's signs. Larger disclaimer signs were posted yesterday adjacent to the Holzer signs, which hang under the clocks at the third-floor level at each end of the building.

Keyboard player and composer Dexter Wansel likes to drop the jazz word a lot, but his Friday night show at the new Blue Moon Jazz Club lacked any linear connection with the music of Bird, Diz and 'Trane. Wansel serves up music that's light and easy. A little funk for the swinging bar crowd. Some melody for people holding hands. A saccharine mellowness that has more to do with WJAZ radio than the legendary A Train. Wansel held forth Friday night with Universe - six other musicians, including two drummers, a second keyboard and a guitarist - in the city's newest jazz room with its long mirrored wall and cool blue light.

MRP Realty is placing a big buy order on Philadelphia's original trading floor, the Bourse building. America's first formal commodities exchange is the main draw in a package of buildings in which the Washington developer acquired a controlling stake Monday. MRP's plans for the 10-story Bourse include higher-end dining and cocktails on the ground floor, with the offices above revamped into what it hopes will be some of the city's most enticing workspaces. The renovations are part of $40 million in improvements to be made to the Bourse and two nearby midcentury office buildings that MRP now possesses in a venture with Philadelphia's Kaiserman Co., the properties' previous sole owner.

The only thing missing from outside the Bourse at 5th and Market streets yesterday was the obligatory Geraldo Rivera warning: Do Not Allow Young Children Near the TV Set. Parental Discretion Advised. To the more than 1,500 fans waiting to see the incorrigible Mr. R., it didn't matter that the subjects of his shows taped in Philadelphia were female impersonators or the Elvis-is-still-with-us issue. The crowd came to see Geraldo. It wasn't the lineup of men dressed like Liza Minnelli or Barbra Streisand or Cher or Patti LaBelle that attracted the mob to the Bourse.

Just in time for the arrival of Pope Francis , local filmmaker and historian Sam Katz has put out a new movie - and the subject couldn't be more appropriate. The 75-minute documentary, "Urban Trinity: The Story of Catholic Philadelphia," explores the history of Catholic immigrants who came to Philadelphia seeking religious freedom and a better life. Katz said he and his team first discussed the idea for a film some years ago, but after the pope's visit was announced last year, they decided to get it made.

As if the rainiest June in Philadelphia history and a federal "sequester" that cut 10 percent from national parks' budgets were not enough, the federal government shutdown now threatens to further disrupt businesses and tourism near the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Merchants in shops at the Bourse across from Independence National Historical Park said they didn't see any impact on the first day of the shutdown Tuesday, but a longer closure could seriously affect the 10,000 visitors per day who normally pass near their doors in October.
