Ford Center for the Performing Arts

venue exterior

24 West Randolph Street, Chicago, IL 60601

Also known as the Oriental Theatre (its original name), The Ford Center has seen legendary performers, including The Three Stooges and Judy Garland, take to its stage. When the theatre's doors opened in 1926, it took the form of a grand movie palace with exotic architecture inspired by India. Although it is no longer a luxurious cinema, the center has thrived as a live performance venue, hosting the finest Broadway productions. A night out at the Ford Centre is just as glamorous an affair as it was in the theatre's early days as its vintage grandeur has been lovingly restored and maintained.
