Auditorium Theatre’s 130th Birthday Celebration Open House


The National Historic Landmark theatre, which officially opened on December 9, 1889, has been a Chicago institution for 130 years. You’re invited to celebrate this milestone anniversary at a FREE Open House! Take a historic theatre tour, pose for a picture at a photo booth with an Auditorium Theatre-themed backdrop; sketch and take photos of the theatre; bring the kids for free popcorn and coloring; grab a drink at the bar; and enter a raffle for a chance to win free tickets to a future Auditorium Theatre performance. Photographs, program books, and posters from the theatre’s archives will also be on display.

Attendees who pre-register for the event get one free drink (beer, wine, soda, or water), but no ticket is needed to attend! Limit of two drink tickets per order.
