Landmark’s Renaissance Place Cinema is an anomaly. It was opened August 4, 2000, but only has five screens of 100-200 seats each, with Dolby Digital and sloped floors, purportedly so that it could easily be converted to retail. Its main entrance is barely noticeable. Its interior is nice, but nothing worth writing home about, featuring some custom light fixtures.
Maybe the strangest thing is that it is only blocks from the long-established Highland Park Theater, which has only one screen fewer and has been able to hold off the competition well. It and the Century Centre in Lincoln Park represent the only two theaters Landmark runs in Chicagoland.
The Renaissance Place Cinema was closed on January 23, 2023. It was taken over by Wayfarer Theaters as their flagship theatre and reopened February 10, 2023.
