Facts

  • The architecture complements the early skyscrapers of the East Loop, specifically the Railway Exchange Building and the nearby Reliance Building. The bay windows, large cornice, and extensive use of glass are common features of the Chicago School of Architecture.
  • The main auditorium of the Gene Siskel Film Center extends into this building from the Butler Building.
  • A small theater was built into the building on Randolph Street as part of the city's Theater District. The occupying company is the Noble Fool Theater.
  • The front of an old 2-story German beer hall was incorporated into the façade as the entrance to the theater. Inside the structure's gable is a glockenspiel which becomes animated on the hour.
  • This structure was built as an addition to the Butler Building, which is directly north on State Street and forms part of the same dormitory.
