Yeah, so Dillinger got shot there... 6/3/2004

Like many of Village Entertainment's takeovers of former Cineplex Odeon/Meridian multiplexes, the prices are reasonable and the employees are friendly. However, the overwhelming second-hand feeling is still evident--and the 30s feel that the Biograph had back in the Larry Edwards days was removed when the theaters were Drabinsky-ed in the 80s and replaced with the same design that every other Cineplex Odeon plex had at the time. However, for first run films (and the occasional surprise) at reasonable prices and decent projection, you could do worse. Pros: Prices, Friendly Staff, Cleaner Than Others Cons: , Blah Concessions, Predictable Booking more

Editorial

  • In Short
    Built in 1914, the Biograph was one of Chicago's original movie theaters. On July 22, 1934, bank robber John Dillinger went to a movie at the theater in the company of the infamous "woman in red," Anna Sage. As he left, he was ambushed by FBI agents and gunned down in the adjacent alley. In 2004, Victory Gardens Theater purchased the Biograph, and plans to renovate and use it for its main stage productions.
