Murder … in the Church? plays on Friday, March 20, and Saturday, March 21. Tables compete to identify the perpetrator and method behind the murder, and the winning guests receive an AFC “Golden Sleuth” Award. Attire for dinner and the show is business-casual to formal.
When the AFC Center originally opened, it was 1926, and the space on South Ashland Avenue was called the Highland Theater. It drew crowds with a mix of vaudeville shows and films, or, as they called them back then, "motion pictures." For decades, its lightbulb-studded marquee towered over its neighborhood—until, one day, it closed down.
This left Chicago with a problem: the building was too beautiful to leave dormant. Its details ranged from terra cotta work on its facades to marble walls and glittering chandeliers. So, eventually, entrepreneurs re-opened it, this time as an event space. Today, the building hosts shows as well as lavish private events in its turn-of-the-century proscenium theater.
