Gorgeous theatre. Very nice decorations and chandeliers. The ceiling inside the theatre is immaculate. The seating is well laid out and gives you a fairly decent view of the stage no matter where you are seating. However, leg room was a bit tight for me....More

Great Chicago landmark, great place to take in a show. But the building architecture alone is worth the price of admission. Be sure and go early and take in all the ambiance. Stairwells and old school attention to detail is remarkable.

Loved all about the Buddy Holly show. A very talented caste and an insightful story. The theater is beautiful and must have been renovated. Not seedy like the Bank of America.
