If you don't want to deal with the complexities of Downtown Oak Park parking, try parking on Forest Avenue north of Ontario, You'll have to enter from the north, but there are always spaces between Ontario and Chicago.

Julius Caesar, returning victorious to Rome from foreign wars, is escorted to the Capitol by enthusiastic citizens for a public celebration. On the way, he is warned by a soothsayer to “beware the Ides of March.” At the celebration, the citizens, through Mark Antony, offer Caesar the crown. Three times he refuses. However, a group of conspirators, headed by Cassius, is disturbed by the power Caesar has gained and the idea that he might seize total power.
