Crossing Six Corners

Six Corners is not just an intersection. It's the 1,938 seat theater, built in 1920, where many Northwest-siders watched their first film. It's the furniture store where you bought your first couch, the corner newsstand where your father picked up the morning paper. It's the 5-floor department store where you went back to school shopping all through your childhood years. Today, it's frozen yogurt after ballet lessons, cocktails and brick-oven pizza.


Six Corners is home. 

To preserve this collective history and decades of memories and stories, Six Corners Association and Filament Theatre have teamed up to create a dynamic partnership presenting Crossing Six Corners to its local community. 

This theatrical patchwork canonizes the history and legend of Chicago’s Northwest Side and the historic Six Corners Shopping District. Through interviews with residents and historians, archived news articles, old pictures, and more, Filament Theatre has developed playful scenes, nostalgic monologues, and creative songs that will fill audience members with love and pride for their Chicago neighborhood.
