Chicago Theatre History

The Chicago Theatre has been one of the hottest destinations in the Windy City for over ninety years, having opened in 1921. The iconic theater has been putting on some of the best shows in the Chicago area for nearly a century and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, four years before it was declared a Chicago Landmark. The building and its sign are one of the most recognizable sights in the city and have been named the city's unofficial emblem. The theater opened as a movie palace and also hosted live performances, most notably jazz, up through the Seventies. The venue proved not to be successful showing movies in the Eighties and closed in 1985 before reopening in 1986 as a music venue.
