Part of the landmark Marina City towers complex near Chicago’s Loop, right along the Chicago River, built by Bertand Goldberg from 1964-67, the “City Within A City”’s movie theater was opened in 1970 and originally could seat about 1,700 in its three auditoriums. (The towers also included an indoor ice-skating rink, bowling alley and dry cleaners, as well as restaurants and, as its name would imply, a marina). It was originally operated by the United Artists chain. The Marina Cinemas was closed on May 17, 1977.
After sitting vacant for many years, the former movie house space was gutted and the space is now occupied by part of the House of Blues.
