Dining Chicago


Bank of America Theatre

The Bank of America Theatre opened as the Majestic Theatre in 1906 and was Chicago’s first million-dollar-plus venue and the city’s tallest building at the time. A hot spot on the vaudeville circuit and later host to such luminaries as Harry Houdini and Lily Langtry, the Majestic closed during the Great Depression and was shuttered for 15 years.

Much of the original design was retained when the theater was remodeled and reopened in 1945, in time for the heyday's favorites like "Carousel," "South Pacific" and "Guys and Dolls." Since its reign as the Bank of America Theatre, it's hosted pre-Broadway premieres "Spamalot," "Kinky Boots" and "Moving Out."
