For the private screening, Groupon buyers also get to put a message on the theater's marquee (a $150 value). Screenings can be of any film currently showing at Pickwick.
Current titles include Lee Daniels' The Butler. Upcoming features include Gravity, Grace Unplugged, Freebirds, Captain Philips, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The Pickwick Theatre recently underwent a $1.5 million renovation that included replacing the old seats with leather rockers and installing 50% larger screens, digital-projection equipment, and state-of-the-art sound.
Pickwick Theatre, home to one of the Chicago area’s largest theaters, showcases the latest Hollywood blockbusters inside a historic, registered-landmark building. Patrons flood their visual and aural receptors with the theater’s current list of films displayed on one of three screens, including an expansive main auditorium that seats 1,000 people or mannequins comically brought to life. Popcorn and soda keep bodily hungers sated throughout films' airtime and prevent stomach growls from interrupting key dialogue.
