Theater rental, Copernicus Center theater, theaters for rent in Chicago, theater rental in Chicago The Copernicus Center theater is the sole surviving atmospheric-style theater in the Chicagoland area, designed by architect Mason Rapp of the prestigious firm of Rapp & Rapp. Built in the 1930’s, it has a unique vintage ambiance, accented by classic red theater seats and a breathtaking blue ceiling which resembles a star-filled sky. Originally a cinema house, much has been achieved to both modernize, but preserve, this jewel on the Northwest side of Chicago. The Copernicus Center has become a popular concert venue with bookings every weekend.

The theater capacity is 1,852 seats – 1,378 on the floor and 474 in the balcony.

Concerts and performances will benefit from a large “thrust” stage and two dressing rooms on either side of the stage. In addition to great visibility from seats, large screens on both sides of the stage are a crowd pleaser. Amenities required by large shows are easily available.
