After nearly twenty years at their old address on N. Broadway, the National Pastime Theater closed its doors and opened a new theatrical venue in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood. The New National Pastime Theater space includes a lobby and office suites. NPT's total space is over 6,500 square feet. NPT's performance space is located in the Masonic Hall that Preston Bradley commissioned when he built the elevator building in 1925. The Masonic Hall turned theater alone is well over 3,000 square feet and can seat up to 300 patrons. The room contains twenty-four foot ceilings, period murals, the original maple floors and Neoclassical architecture typical of the period.
