70mm Cinemas And Films In Chicago, USA

All 70mm film lists
Compiled By Michael Coate and William Kallay Date: 8 December 2003
Part 1: "The Cinemas"

The following is a list of theatres equipped for 70-millimeter film presentations in the Chicago, Illinois, USA metropolitan ("Chicagoland") area. This is not a list of theatres currently in operation that have 70mm presentation capability. Instead, this is a historical list which documents those theatres with 5-perf 70mm capability at one time or another between 1955 and the present. Many of the theatres listed are closed or have been demolished. Some, however, are currently in operation and may still have 70mm projection capability. The chain/owners, number of screens, years of operation, etc. have not been included.
