Located on the site of the Pastime Theatre (which has its own page on Cinema Treasures). The 327-seat Today Theater, which opened February 28, 1941 on W. Madison Street near N. Dearborn Street, was the second theater in the Loop that featured a mostly newsreel format. The first Loop theater to do this was the Loop Theater, originally called the Telenews.
During the Today Theater’s last years, it showed adult films. Visitors to the Today Theater often went to the Forum Cafeteria – a two-level Streamline Moderne delight that was next door and was razed in the early-1980’s at the same time as the Today Theater. The site of the theater is now 3 First National Plaza.
