Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University

Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University Review

Designed by notable architects Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler, the 4,300-seat, Romanesque Revival–style Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University opened in 1889 as an opera house and later became a National Historic Landmark. Known for its perfect acoustics and excellent sight lines, the ornate theater features marble mosaics, dramatic gilded ceiling arches, and intricate murals. (Also of note: The theater was one of the first public buildings to have electric lighting and air-conditioning.)

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
