Theater and Performing Arts

The Aurora Area is home to some of the most beautiful theatres and performance art spaces in Chicagoland, like the art deco landmark of the Paramount Theatre and the historic, intimate Sandwich Opera House. Live entertainment thrives everywhere from storefront spaces to community-supported art galleries and even at Fermilab, where its Art & Lecture Series attracts fine art performances and artist talks from around the world.
