    Terrible acoustics, but neat neighborhood venue.

    Hey The Vic Theatre, you should join Freebie! It’s pretty rad and the benefits are great for both you and me. Check it out!

    Decent sound and awful bathrooms. Staff are good, but it'd be nice if the place was better maintained.

    Matt Heckler · April 21
  • John H.

    Double or Triple features for $5. Can't beat the movie price. I just wish they had better beer prices. 6 or 7 bucks is too much for an old movie house that rarely gets crowded.

    Rock + Brew - great for you Cheap dates out there. Two movies and drinks for under $10 (I think). Also great indie shows.

    Save some time and bring cash for the bars.

    I've been to some amazing concerts here. It's nice that there's a ton of seating on the balcony, though it means the fairly small floor can be horribly over-packed. Practically next to the L.

    Best mid-sized venue in the city.

    Hang by the lighting booth. Perfect sight lines, room to move, near the bar and near the sound guy for best results.

    Concerts and open bar

    They require an illegal $25 minimum on credit cards, so bring cash.

    Shitty place to see metal. Sounds like mud, even with bass filtering earplugs

    Kahlan · October 2, 2014
  • Redeye Chicago

    Alternately a music venue and a movie theater, this celebrated locale is the perfect place to catch touring artists or enjoy a few beers during rowdy screenings of second-run and classic movies. Read more

    Tip for bands: please skip this venue.

    Awesome theater. Managed by assholes.

  • Eric M.

    The upstairs seating may seem out of the way, buy every seat has an unobstructed view

    Eric Munn · October 14, 2013

    Pre Phantogram crowd!

    Dirk Lester · October 10, 2013
  • Kerry K.

    Buy tickets at the physical box office here (hours online) and avoid ticket fees

    Kerry K · May 14, 2013
  • Elizabeth K.

    Old, pretty and a little weird... Meaning this place is awesome. $5 to see all three movies in a night, ok beer on tap, and you can bring in outside food.

    Elizabeth Kinsman · March 30, 2013
  • Trixie A. C.

    Popcorn is stale and awful. Don't waste your cash on it.

    This place is a dangerous, disgusting dump.

    Robert Shell · August 2, 2012
  • Geoffrey Z.

    Great theatre to see your favorite "under-the-radar" bands in a very intimate setting

    Geoffrey ZuHone · June 23, 2012
  • Lisa W.

    If you are a short person like me, head upstairs for a seat and a better view. If there isn't a show, check out Brew and View. Cheap beer, cheaper movies, and one of the cheapest date ideas around.

    Lisa W · May 13, 2012
  • Arline W.

    Total hotties live here. One makes kraut. Yum!

    Arline Welty · April 15, 2012

    Tiny bathrooms. Ladies, be prepared to wait.

    Nicole Kulina · April 15, 2012
  • Rick C.

    Ok, so Brew & View / Vic Theatre is not yet a Central Lakeview Merchants member.....but 3 movies for $5 and 2 fully-stocked bars = Big Fun!!

    Rick Cummings · January 16, 2012

    Guaranteed good time!

    Lesa Mehl · December 2, 2011
  • My Social One

    One of the best venues in town- you either get great shows or the brew and view! Yay!

    My Social One · September 26, 2011
  • Keith B.

    Drink and view everything!

    Keith Branch · August 9, 2011
  • Steve C.

    This place is friendly to everyone except emo slackers who don't have their shit together and, well, FUCK them!! Ya know??

    Steve Cochran · July 22, 2011

    Box office ladies rule. So do the bartenders and cocktail waitresses. Working hard for the money!!

    Katie Mckiernan · June 23, 2011
  • The Feast

    No matter how crowded it gets, there's always a pocket of space near the ramps that lead down onto the front-of-stage floor. Try it, you'll like it!

    The Feast · June 10, 2011
  • Digital Tour Bus

    Don't bother driving to concerts here because a CTA line is literally a block away! You in for an awesome concert, so get your ears ready!

  • Steve ‘Pudgy’ D.

    This is also where you can obtain a ticket for an event at the Aragon without paying a 'convenience' surcharge. →Cash only!←

    seen a million concerts here. loved the saw doctors last week!

    Again, this place is a joke. Tried to call them all day to ask a question and they didn't answer the phone til 5:30. The guy was horribly rude on the phone.

    Nicole Kulina · February 22, 2011
  • Andrea G.

    Went to see Ralphie May on Friday night at the Vic, great show!

    Andrea Goldberg · February 21, 2011
  • Nicole K.

    This venue is NOT street teamer friendly. We had to hang up posters for a band and they kept changing their minds about it. Fuck this place.

    Nicole Kulina · February 20, 2011
  • Heidi A.

    Love going to concerts here. You can walk up to the front, place your beer on the stage and dance the night away.

    Heidi Aldama · February 7, 2011
  • Jen K.

    Wait by the alley for an hour or two & you will be able to meet, take pictures w/ & get autographs from the performers you just saw.

    Be a bad ass and drink while you are at the movies! Monday-Thursday get $3 MGD, Miller Lite or High Life Drafts while catching some flicks. Brought to you by THE EXPENDABLES opening August 13!

    Saw "Five for Fighting" last night at the The Vic. Great venue. Watch out, they give you bottle water with no cap! (silly)

    Pay $5 to see awesome movies and drink $3 beers! You can't go wrong.

    Whether its seeing a concert, or enjoyin the Brew & View, The Vic is my favorite theater in Chi-town.

    Some of the bars accept credit cards, but they place a $100 hold on your account, so watch out if you're lowish on funds.

    Lleva suficiente efectivo
