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 and becoming a major component of the entertainment scene from the get-go.

The venue proved not to be successful showing movies in the Eighties and closed in 1985 before reopening in 1986 as a music venue, delivering an exciting new era that has had fans pouring in to be a part of a string of great shows.
