Chicago Theatre DowntownThe Chicago Theatre was the first large, lavish movie palace in America and became the model for future complexes. The 3,600 seat auditorium opened its doors in 1921 and featured Duke Ellington on opening night. The vertical sign outside bearing the name "Chicago" stands at almost six stories. Since a full renovation in 1986, many of the world's brightest stars have visited the Chicago theatres stage, including Harry Connick, Jr., Aretha Franklin, Prince, and David Letterman.
