Biograph Theater in Chicago

Show Map
Plays are shown here (see Victory Gardens [[Chicago/Lincoln Park-Old Town#Do|below]]), but the theater itself is still best known as the place where John Dillinger went down in 1934. America's most famous bank robber was leaving after a movie with the Lady in Red when FBI agents opened fire. The owners of the theater have never been keen to play up the connection, but the classic marquee is still there. Reportedly, Dillinger fans hold gatherings outside on July 22, the anniversary of his death.
