Historic movie theaters grant cineastes an unparalleled movie-watching experience, offering illustrious showrooms, antique décor, and the childhood home movies of William Howard Taft.

Nestled beneath the luminous beacon of its majestic marquee, the Wilmette Theatre beckons roving cinephiles with its rotating slate of Hollywood blockbusters, art films, and variety of live performances. Film buffs can peruse the theater’s current offerings in search of their favorite actor, director, or electrician before sinking into the seats of its storied 600-seat theater amid the cylindrical glow of a whirring projector. Declare a thumb war against unjust critics after greasing up digits with a buttery bucket of popcorn and reserving your soda for rhythmic sips to the sonic booms bouncing off the theater’s pristine sound-[sic] fold curtains. Nearly a century old, the Wilmette underwent a key renovation in 2006 that greenlit its enduring existence and reinforced it for future flicks with an overhauled concessions center, fresh coats of paint, and modernized restrooms.

Wilmette Theatre

Renovated in 2006, the nearly century-old Wilmette Theatre entertains theatergoers with a rotating slate of current and classic offerings, including Hollywood blockbusters and niche art films. Cylindrical light from a whirring projector flickers across two auditoriums, where movie-going duos can snack on buttery tubs of popcorn while sipping a soda and whispering spoilers into the facility’s pristine Soundfold curtain. The Wilmette underwent a key renovation in 2006, fortifying the century-old venue’s commitment to quality art with fresh coats of paint, an overhauled concessions center, and screenings of feature-length still lifes.

Loved this theater experience. Great movie- 56 Up. Staff was wonderful. Everything perfect! Well except for the tall guy who came in late and then sat right in front of me.

We went to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show which is a unique experience in its on right. The theater is cozy and the staff very friendly. Its a bit far from where I live but I might be willing to go back for another special event such as this. Overall a good time and with the trip.
