  • Auditorium Theatre
    Four Things to Know About the Auditorium Theatre Built in 1889 by the famous architectural firm Adler and Sullivan, the Auditorium Theatre once reigned as one of Chicago's finest playhouses. Today, the National Registered Landmark belongs to Roosevelt University, and still enjoys life as an active theater and music venue. Restorations in 1967 and 2002 preserved its gold ceilings, eye-popping detail, and pin-drop acoustics, giving a new generation of Chicagoans a chance to commune with the city's history. Take your eyes off the stage and read on for the marvels surrounding this classic theatre: It’s a portrait from an architecture as a young man. Adler and Sullivan tapped none other than a young Frank Lloyd Wright as draftsman. President Grover Washington, meanwhile, came to Chicago to lay the cornerstone. The theatre had the first ever air-conditioning unit. By modern standards, the 15 pounds of ice per day it used to cool to interiors seems a bit passe. But at the time, this was the first air-conditioning ever and a marvel of engineering. American luminaries from all fields graced its stages. In 1921, The Auditorium Theatre hosted Chicago’s first ever live radio broadcast—a performance of Puccini's classic Madame Butterfly. Other momentous event at the theatre include concerts by Jimi Hendrix and Frank Sinatra, as well speeches by Booker T. Washington and President Theodore Roosevelt, who delivered his Armageddon speech from the Auditorium’s stage. The gilded ceilings are still made of gold. Although its doors were shuttered for years, the theater still boasts the same arched ceilings covered in 24-karat gold-leaf that once wowed Gilded Age audiences.
