Fodor's Review

Since 1921, visitors to the Chicago Theatre, which began as a Balaban and Katz movie palace, have marveled at its stunning Baroque interior; the 3,600-seat auditorium features crystal chandeliers, bronze light fixtures, and murals on the wall and ceiling. Lately it has hosted big-name music acts like Indigo Girls and Arcade Fire.
