The Chicago Theatre is a national landmark and has served host to a wide variety of celebrated silent films and movies, world-class theatre productions, sold-out concerts, side-splitting comedy shows and special events. The 3,600-seat venue was designed in the French Baroque style by architects Cornelius W. Rapp and George L. Rapp and is the oldest surviving example of this architectural style in Chicago today. The illustrious "C-H-I-C-A-G-O" marquee is one of the few such signs in existence today.
Today, an array of the entertainment world's brightest stars and greatest productions grace the stage, including Arcade Fire, Kanye West, Van Morrison, Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, Harry Connick Jr, Ellen DeGeneres, Prince, Diana Ross and Aretha Franklin.
The Chicago Theatre is located at 175 N. State Street in Chicago, Illinois.
