Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Chicago's breath-taking National Landmark Theatre hosts concerts, comedians, theatrical productions and special events every year. The 3,600 seat auditorium is seven stories high, and the vertical "C-H-I-C-A-G-O," sign is one of the few such signs in existence today. A symbol of State Street and Chicago, the marquee is a landmark in itself, as is the Wurlitzer pipe organ. Patrons can also go behind-the-scenes on their educational venue tour, which runs a few times a week.

We went to see this musical in June at The Bank of America Theatre. Venue is awesome! Great sound, comfortable seats. The show was awesome as well! Would love to go back.

Went to see a comedy show on a Saturday night...just love that theater! I just find the auditorium so ornate and just impressive. The seats are average…but perhaps the row width is smaller than average? Or -mostly likely- my butt is increasing in size. But either way, we always enjoy catching a show at the Chicago Theater and would recommend it for anyone.
