Harper Theater

Designed by Horatio Wilson (1857-1917), one of Chicago’s most prominentarchitects, the Harper Theater building was first issued a permit on Oct. 8, 1913. The address was originally at 5234 S. Rosalie (now Harper & 1452-64 E. 53rd St.). The Prairie Style building is listed on The National Register of Historic Places as part of The Hyde Park-Kenwood Historic District.

In its new iteration, the Harper Theater is a full-service movie theater with state-of-the-art facilities, a cafe serving the local Metropolis coffee and cocktail lounge.
