The grandeur of The Chicago Theatre often leaves its visitors breathless. The elegant lobby, majestic staircase and beautiful auditorium, complete with murals above the stage and on the ceiling, are components of an amazing building called “the Wonder Theatre of the World” when it opened on October 26, 1921. The 3,600 seat auditorium is seven stories high, more than one half of a city block wide, and nearly as long. The vertical sign "C-H-I-C-A-G-O," at nearly six stories high, is one of the few such signs in existence today.
The Chicago Theatre Downstairs in the Loop’s newest theatre! Located on the lower level of the legendary Chicago Theatre, this intimate 281-seat capacity venue opened in September 2006 with the triumphant return of Chicago favorite, Shear Madness.
