An ornate movie palace and vaudeville hall built in 1927 for $1.5 million and restored and renovated in 2000 for $18.5 million. It's a delightful example of an "atmospheric-style" theater with gilded Spanish castles, Italian villas and Chinese dragons in relief on the sides and a starry false sky.
The Coronado is worth seeing just for its opulent interior, but it is also host to many performing arts groups and traveling shows.
Event parking is available across from the theater in the ramp on the east side of N. Main and in nearby city parking lots.
Coronado Performing Arts Center has been named one of Illinois' 150 Great Places by the American Institute of Architects, Illinois Council. This prestigious award is given to places that have been identified by leading architects as contributing to their communities' quality of life.
