The Chicago Theatre
Although it now specializes in live performances, the Chicago Theatre was the first large, lavish movie palace in America when it opened in 1921. The French Baroque venue features a six-story replica of the Arc de Triomphe above its marquee. The 3,553-seat auditorium is seven stories high, adorned with murals on the ceiling. The main-floor lobby holds 250 while the mezzanine lobby holds 200.
