New Movie Theater Opens (Yeah, You Heard Me)


1 comment

Kerasotes Theatres, the chain that operates City North 14, Webster Place, and various north suburban venues, has opened a new, upscale multiplex at Clark and Roosevelt, the first commercial movie theater in the area since Burnham Plaza closed in 2005.

ShowPlace ICON has 13 screens, stadium seating, and—like Century 12 and CineArts 6 in Evanston—a 21-and-over section where you can order alcohol and take it into the theater. To judge from this week's schedule, the bookings are the same wide-release stuff showing at every other multiplex in town, but the venue is clearly geared toward adults (there are no games in the lobby, courtesy during screenings is supposedly enforced, and no one under 17 is allowed in after 7 PM without an accompanying adult).

The theater wasn't able to provide us with showtimes by our print deadline this week, but we hope to have it listed in print and online soon. Bookings for the weekend have since been posted by Kerasotes, and Greg Hinz has a review of the theater in Chicago Business.
