WHEATON, IL — When the Wheaton Grand Theatre opened its doors on May 25, 1925, it was a landmark event that brought theatrical excitement from the major cities into the western suburbs.

Designed by Chicago architect, Norman Brydges, The Wheaton Grand was a showcase theatre where talented vaudeville performers graced the stage, silent movies brought laughter and tears to the screen. Once restored, the theatre will obtain a rare 4/26 Robert Morton Theatre Organ console from the historic Loew’s Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York.
