The neighborhood theater was built in 1915 and has been an iconic local landmark ever since.
Having been mostly closed for over a year Logan Square’s Logan Theatre will reopen to the public this coming Friday, May 21. The movie theatre on 2646 N. Milwaukee Avenue closed in March of last year with the arrival of the global pandemic before reopening briefly at the end of August. After three weeks open, however, the theatre once again closed its doors due to a lack of films to screen.
Now an email sent on Friday, May 14, and a statement on the Logan Theatre website, have revealed that the beloved neighborhood theater will resume screenings from this coming Friday. Though no schedule has been released at the time of speaking the statement reads “stand by for our movie list & showtimes — they’re coming soon.”
The Logan Theatre will resume business with a diligent re-opening safety protocol that will follow the guidelines distributed by the City and State officials to ensure the safety of employees and guests. This will include extensive cleaning between screenings, limited capacity, and contactless transactions. More information about these safety measures can be found here.
After opening in 1915 as the Paramount Theatre, it was taken over by the Vaselopolis family and became The Logan Theatre. The family-owned business quickly became a local hub for the diverse Logan Square community and built a reputation for showing a wide range of independent and blockbuster films.
The original design, architecture, and several stunning features have been restored to their former glory giving the theater an elegant and unique identity fused with modern-day amenities.
