Victory Gardens Biograph Theater

For the second year in a row, we are converting this playhouse to a movie theater with help from our amazing sponsors, SPL Chicago. These guys really know how to make the big screen look fantastic!

Address:

2433 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, IL 60614

Getting here:

The theater is a short walk from the Fullerton Red/Brown/Purple Line stop. Parking in this area can be difficult, so we recommend taking the good ol’ CTA.
