New Chicago Theaters
CHICAGO, IL — Crain’s Chicago Business reports that Sundance Cinemas is now looking to locate on the site of Chicago’s former Fanny May factory, at the somewhat surprising location of Jackson & Racine on the West Side.
This is, however, a rapidly developing area. As a part of the Metro 290 development, Sundance plans to open a 6-to-8 screen arthouse. The site is convenient to the University of Illinois at Chicago campus, the Eisenhower Expressway, and the CTA Blue Line.
Elsewhere, as previously reported, Kerasotes plans to open two new complexes; a 14-screen near the old Bricktown Square cinemas, at Grand & Armitage, and a 16-screen in a South Loop development at Roosevelt and Wells.
