Located in what was formerly known as McCormickville, in Near North neighborhood. This small theatre stood on N. Wabash Street between E. Delaware Place and E. Chestnut Street. The Rush Theatre was open by April 1972 and lasted until 1974.
Housed in a former coach house, which was later converted into office space in the 1940’s, then starting in 1956, a series of nightclubs, starting with the Scotch Mist, later known as the Rat Fink and then the Alley, it would be converted into an adult cinema in 1972. After the Rush Theatre closed, it became the Candy Store, a notorious strip club, which was a frequent target of police raids in the 1970’s & early-1980’s. The Candy Store was finally closed in 1983.
It was later demolished and the Hotel Sofitel Magnificent Mile opened on the site in 2002.
