About Chicago, Illinois
Celebrate Chicago’s historic theatres with THS
Chicago, situated near Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River, was incorporated as a city in 1837. It enjoyed rapid growth in the mid- nineteenth century, and played an important role in American history. Today Chicago is one of the country’s largest cities and an international hub for business and finance.
The city’s historic theatres and film industry associations reach back to the days of Essanay Studios on Argyle Street. Theatre treasures built by firms like Balaban and Katz, Lindley P. Rowe, and Rapp & Rapp make the city a unique destination for THS and historic theatre enthusiasts.
The 2016 Conclave Theatre Tour will visit notable theatres in the Chicago area and celebrate their heritage, success in their communities, and their legacy for the future of these great buildings.
