Bensenville Theatre's Phase 1 Renovation


We are thrilled to announce the kick-off off the restoration of the Bensenville Theatre! As part of an effort to preserve our community's heritage, we are embarking on Phase 1 of the exterior renovation project, which aims to restore the iconic 1927 façade and marquee to their original splendor but with modern technology.

Here are the key details:

Project Overview:

  • Phase 1 will focus on revitalizing the theatre's exterior, giving it a stunning makeover that harks back to its historic roots.
  • The marquee will be designed to capture the charm and elegance of the original design from 1927.
  • The façade will undergo careful restoration to ensure it reflects the architectural grandeur of yesteryears.


  • We are excited to share that Phase 1 is set to commence on September 20, 2023. Please note that these dates are subject to weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances.

Impact on Access:

  • During the Phase I renovation, the theatre will remain open for business but there may be temporary changes to access points around the theatre. We will make every effort to minimize inconvenience to our valued patrons.

We look forward to witnessing the Bensenville Theatre's transformation into a true architectural gem that will continue to be a source of pride for our community. Your support and enthusiasm for this endeavor are greatly appreciated.
