All Chicago has a wonderful Theater District. On October 5th, 2018, my family and I enjoyed Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Oriental Theater. The venue is amazing, come early to view the beautiful theater, then enjoy the show!

Great old theater which is wildly decorated in an oriental theme. Very 1920s in size and look. Acoustics can make it hard to hear in some seats. Great place for Broadway extravaganzas.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of

Thank you for your question, however I am not sure I understand what you are asking. If you are referencing buses, I am not aware of any specific pick up or drop off points.
