The Full Story


The Wilmette Theatre was established in 1913 and has been a staple of the Wilmette landscape ever since. In 1989 we were able to divide the Theatre into two spaces allowing us to offer even more showings. The Theatre has played host to many fabulous movies and film festivals over the years and is excited to continue  the tradition. Recently the Theatre underwent another renovation by changing replacing the older seats in Theatre 1 with more comfortable rocking seats and added the "Living Room" in Theatre 2. The Living Room has flexible seating with cozy love seats and chairs- perfect for private events as well as a relaxing way to watch movies. The Living Room also features a large stage and an updated, state-of-the-art sound and lighting system. The Theatre hosts many live events including musical performances, comedy, dance, etc. 

As a Non For Profit space, the Wilmette Theatre is funded by grants, donations, and visits from our lovely patrons.
