Ford Center for the Performing Arts–Oriental Theatre Review

An opulent "hasheesh-dream decor" of Buddhas and elephant-type chairs made this a popular spot for viewing first-run movies starting in 1926. Though listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, the building continued to crumble for some time after. In 1998 it was restored to its former splendor, and since that time has had a second life as a home to Broadway shows.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
