Chicago Theaters #1 – Mitchell Kobelinski Theater

We have the sole surviving venue with atmospheric-styling of all Chicago theaters, designed by architect Mason Rapp of the prestigious firm of Rapp & Rapp. Built in the 1930’s, it has a unique vintage ambiance missing in most Chicago theaters. It is accented by classic red theater seats and a breathtaking blue ceiling which resembles a star-filled sky. [Yes, the stars in the ceiling are lit for performance – a crowd pleaser]

Originally a cinema house, much has been achieved to both modernize, but preserve, this jewel of Chicago theaters. The Copernicus Center has become a popular concert venue on the Northwest side of Chicago with bookings every week.

Our theater patrons enjoy easy access to great events without the heavy traffic and expense of downtown travel or parking. We are located one block east of Milwaukee Avenue, and two blocks west of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90), Exit 84. Our theater is also conveniently accessible by public transportation. The Jefferson Park terminal is a few blocks from our large parking lot.

Theater rental clients benefit from event listing on our busy Website, Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. Our professionally managed ticketing provides producers/promoters with a large affiliate network …. resulting in higher ticket sales.

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

Live 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 all seats, large screens on both sides of the stage are a crowd pleaser. Amenities required by large shows are easily available. (see lighting, sound, & technical details below)  

Our Lobby area serves attendees with optional one or two bars and cozy seating in the south lobby wing.  For larger shows, the Annex bar is also available to handle the demand during intermission.  In addition, our Annex & King’s Hall venue spaces are available for MEET & GREETS as well as private dining rooms for performers.
