Chicago Theater Map is a 1:1 scale version of the Chicago Theater, designed by architecture firm of Rapp and Rapp in their signature Neo-Baroque French-Revival style. The theater was the Balaban and Katz’s flagship location, and at one point was the “…largest, most costly and grandest of the super deluxe movie palaces” built up to that date. The theater is located in Chicago’s main theater district in the northeastern corner of Chicago’s Loop neighborhood. Some other well-known landmarks the Chicago Theater is located by are the Oriental Theater, the Marshall Field’s and Co. (now “Macy’s”) Building, Block 37, and the New Masonic Building. The Chicago Theater’s address is 175 North State Street.
Some history and facts on the building:
This building was built in the Neo-Baroque French-Revival style by the architecture firm of Rapp and Rapp in 1921. It is the oldest surviving example of the style used in Chicago, and was among the first to be built in the Neo-Baroque French-Revival signature style that was commonly used by Rapp and Rapp for building movie palaces.
Some examples of the French influence on the design of the theater:
- The interior shows French Baroque influence from the Second French Empire.
- The front design/motif of the building is journalistically compared to the l’Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
- The grand lobby, five stories high and surrounded by gallery promenades at the mezzanine and balcony levels, is influenced by the Royal Chapel at Versailles.
- The grand staircase is patterned from the grand stair of the Paris Opera House and ascends to the various balcony levels
Marshall Field’s (Now “Macy’s) supplied the drapes and many pieces of furniture for the theater’s interior, and the flagship store is less than a city block away from the theater!
