In 1979 the Copernicus Center, established to serve the metropolitan Chicago area as a major civic, cultural, educational, recreational and entertainment resource, purchasing the old Gateway Theater. The Gateway Theater was the first movie theater in Chicago built exclusively for the “talkies,” and is a historic landmark.
Meeting rooms, banquet and party spaces with kitchens and bars suit a variety of social and corporate events. The renovated beautiful bar in the vast Lobby venue makes it a unique location for special events and weddings; with brides enjoying pictures on the elegant spiral staircase. The theater has been restored to preserve its classic 1930’s look and is also available as a venue rental.
Recently, the Center has expanded to include an additional facility with a large modern event room and additional office space. This new Annex facilitiy expands our style options. From elegant to modern, the Copernicus Center offers multiple choices.
Located next to two expressways and a block away from the Northwest sides rail and Metra hub, the location cannot be beat ! Ample free parking available.

The staff was very friendly and professional. I especially loved how well they transitioned the ceremony to the reception during cocktail hour. I recommend this vendor to anyone especially people with a small budget.Sent on 08/30/2016
