    Vegans rejoice at the Alternative Baking Company cookies ($4.50). Surprisingly good, they're available in a ton of flavors like peanut butter-chocolate chip, lemon poppy seed, and oatmeal raisin.

    The best arthouse theater in the Chicago area! Take a look at the beautiful terracotta facade left over from when this was the Diversey/Century Theatre. Absolutely stunning!!

    Finally urban-sophisticated design sense is being applied to the internal scheme of this odd & old building. A form-follows-function design team is reimagining and redecorating the building. Progress!

    Buy your tix ahead of time. If you're seeing a movie during the weekend be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes early or you'll only be able to grab a seat in the first two rows.

    They redid the cinema recently and have a beautiful bar. Nice selection of wines and whiskies and allowed to take them into the theater.

    A bit of an older theater, but plays amazing films that you may not be able to see elsewhere. Surprisingly not that expensive for its location. Overall, great experience.

    This year’s breakout documentary offers a revealing view into the street art world while perhaps duping the audience with an elaborate hoax. It’s a hilarious & head-spinning rollercoaster ride. Read more
