About Athenaeum Theatre

Built in 1911 by St. Alphonsus Church, The Athenaeum was conceived as “a neighborhood playhouse” serving the needs of the Lakeview community and as an opera house for the largely German parish.

Operating continuously since 1911, the Athenaeum main stage is actually two theaters in one — an intimate playhouse with 454 main floor seats for smaller needs, and, with the addition of its generous balcony, a 984-seat theater for larger productions.
