Located in the Near North neighborhood at N. Wabash Street and E. Delaware Place, across from where Connors Park is located today, this small adult cinema opened in October 1972 and lasted until 1975.
Previously the building housed a series of nightclubs, including the Rat Fink, the Alley, and the Scotch Mist before being converted into a pornographic movie house. After closing as the Rush Theatre, the space became the notorious Candy Store, a frequently raided (for prostitution) strip club which lasted into the early-1980s before it was shut down.
The Rush Theatre was advertised in the Chicago Tribune as "Recommended for Couples" and each advertisement always listed a triple feature "3 Explosive Titles" and "16mm – In Color – West Coast Adult Films".
The rear of the Sofitel Hotel is now on the site.
