Chicago Theatre FAQ's
What is the difference between Mezzanine Boxes and Booths?
The mezzanine booths sit directly behind boxes in section F-T. The booths are a unique option in that they offer booth seating with a four-top table. The mezzanine boxes are also exclusive with most sections only having two rows and like all box seats, they offer more personal space.
What are the issues with Partial View, Limited View, and Obstructed View seats?
Partial and limited view seating typically have a blind spot to a particular area on the periphery of the stage away from the main action. The blind spot will not affect your view of the action on the center of the stage and will only come into play for some scenes. Obstructed View seating refers to an obstruction in the typical line of sight to the stage. This is usually a handrail in the Loge or Balcony, in the rear of the Center Orchestra it may be a mixing board. Seats with these issues will be marked as such and can be had at steep discounts to seats without these issues. These tend to be a good bargain.
What are the best seats at the Chicago Theatre?
The Chicago Theatre's 3,600 seating capacity is rather large for a theater. The above-average capacity is due to its being both a wide theatre and three-level theater. The grand theatre's large stage is accommodating for almost all the seats. That said some seats are better than others and if you won't settle for anything less than the best; seats in Rows AA-MM of the Main Floor sections 4L & 4R are as good as it gets. Seats on the left and right adjacent aisles of these rows also fall into this category.
