Chicago Theater, Gangsters and Italian Lunch Adventure

Begin the day with the history-filled journey of the Chicago Theater, from the inception of this majestic venue in 1921, all the way to its present-day incarnation as a premiere entertainment venue. This tour encompasses historical and architectural highlights of the building, including the grand lobby, sweeping staircase and majestic auditorium. Tour guests have the chance to stand on The Chicago Theatre stage, plus view artist signatures on the dressing room walls, including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Dolly Parton and so many more! Next, join the educational and entertaining “Chicago’s Untouchables Tour.” Guides, in the persona of 1920s gangsters, present an accurate account of the crimes and activities that were going on in Chicago during the prohibition era. Be entertained and learn about the exploits of Capone, Moran, Dillinger and the rest of the boys on this unforgettable Chicago crime tour. Finally, relax and enjoy lunch with fellow Osher members at Osteria Via Stato, an authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Chicago’s vibrant River North neighborhood.
