The Davis Theater, previously Pershing Theater, is a landmark in Lincoln Square and the city of Chicago. Still serving the community today as a cinema, it is one of the oldest and longest running movie houses in the city.
Designed by Walter W. Ahlschlager, it has had several owners over its almost 100 year history. In that time the Davis has been registered on the National Register of Historic Places and undergone numerous renovations. It recently opened in December 2016 after a 4 million dollar renovation and restoration. Ensuring that the Davis will be here for many generations to come.
