Cousin of director Burt Balaban and Judy Balaban. Nephew of Barney Balaban.

Son of Elmer Balaban (1909-2001), who was last surviving of seven Balaban brothers who dominated the theater business in Chicago and much of the Midwest. The Balaban boys, sons of immigrant Jewish grocery-store owners in Chicago, built city's first "supercolossal" theaters, the 700-seat Circle and the 2,000-seat Central Park. Bob's Uncle Barney Balaban became chairman of Paramount Pictures in Hollywood and wanted to pass the torch to Elmer, but he declined.
