Chicago’s Oriental Theatre is an ornate performance venue at 24 W Randolph Street near the Lake, State/Lake and Millennium rail stations. Open since 1926, the theater regularly presents Broadway shows and Broadway in Chicago offers tours of the building.

Things to Know

  • It is easy to walk to the theater from multiple stations.
  • The Lake Station on the red line is closest to the venue.
  • If you need a handicap-accessible station, use Lake on the red line or Clark/Lake for all other lines.

CTA Directions

From the red line, travel to the Lake Station. From the blue line, exit at Clark/Lake and for all other lines use Clark/Lake if you need accessibility, otherwise, exit at State/Lake for the shortest walk.

Tip: The Oriental Theatre is just around the corner from the Chicago Theatre. If you’re exiting at the Lake or State/Lake station, walk toward the Chicago Theatre sign and turn right on W. Randolph.
