Chicago Theater Rental
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. Click here to learn more about our historic main theater.

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.
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.
