Join the Northwest Chicago Historical Society as we tour the Historic Patio Theater. The 1927 Patio Theatre was one of just a few classic single-screen neighborhood movie houses in Chicago not to have been carved up into multiple screens.
The Patio’s auditorium has a great Atmospheric style effect with twinkling “stars” and drifting “clouds” in a night “sky”. Designed by Rudolph G. Wolff, and seats 1500 the theater has remained unused and closed since 2001. But we will get to see the progress of the renovations that have been taking place at this neighborhood jewel.

  • Home to a powerful 4000 watt spotlight which was obtained from the Chicago Stadium.
  • Home to the restored Barton pipe organ that was installed for the theater’s opening in 1927.

Be one of the first people to see this classic theater before it opens to the public.
The cost of this tour is $10.00 Pay with Paypal or pay the NWCHS at the theater door. (Free to paid Northwest Chicago Historic Society members).
