Iconic Film in a Historic Cinema
While the main event at any movie theater is, of course, the movie itself, an intriguing, historic venue always enhances the film watching experience. Logan Theatre, in Logan Square, offers patrons a glimpse of old Chicago. Opened in 1915 as the single-screen Paramount Theatre, the cinema retains its 20th-century allure. A series of thoughtful renovations have restored the stained-glass arch above the Theatre’s entrance, highlighted refurbished marble walls, uncovered a decorative relief panel dating back to the original interior, and underscored the building’s original Art Deco details. Enjoy the gorgeous building as you grab a drink in the bar or head to the lounge before or after your movie.
From May 30th–June 1st, watch the classic musical Cabaret, which screens at 10:30PM. Every Monday, check out open mic comedy. Test your movie knowledge with a trivia night each Tuesday. This June, you’ll be able to see other old favorites—Rear Window, Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Wayne’s World—on the big screen.
