Join the Northwest Chicago Historical Society as we tour the Historic Patio Theater. The 1927 Patio Theatre was one of just a few classic single-screen neighborhood movie houses in Chicago not to have been carved up into multiple screens.
The Patio's auditorium has a great Atmospheric style effect with twinkling "stars" and drifting "clouds" in a night "sky". Designed by Rudolph G. Wolff, and seats 1500 the theater has remained unused and closed since 2001. But we will get to see the progress of the renovations that have been taking place at this neighborhood jewel.Be one of the first people to see this classic theater before it opens for the public.
The cost of this tour is $10.00 but free to paid Northwest Chicago Historic Society members.
