    A classic Chicago establishment and a great place to catch a show. Reasonably priced ($7-$8) beers to boot, given the venue. Chick-fil-A is next door in case you need a pre-show snack.

    Beautiful, iconic theatre with great seats in lower levels. Nose bleeds aren't worth the money though.

    Beautiful but needs some TLC. Sound is exquisite. Comfy seats. Just a fabulous place to see a show.

    Beautiful and iconic performance space. A must see. Seating in the balcony is better than floor seats in the back of the main level.

    The upper foyer of the Chicago Theatre can be seen in The Untouchables (1987) in an early scene as Al Capone receives his morning newspaper and the Bookkeeper checks the accounts.

    Worst venue in Chicago. Rows T and U in the balcony are folding chairs, not real seats. Mandatory $1 bag check. Super rude staff. Hateful place to be. Avoid at all costs!

    Donnie and Marie, Should be here instead !!!
