We didn’t realize the theater was inside a school so didn’t find it right away.

This is a very small theater, it is in a closed high school. Don't expect anything fancy! But the seats were comfortable and the theater is nice.

They had bottled water and candy available for sale (cash only). If you're planning to eat before or after, there are many good choices in downtown Lake Forest or in Highwood. We ate at the Lantern in Lake Forest. Wonderful casual family environment with festive lights and a train set that runs along the ceiling. Casual - burgers, sandwiches, etc..

The weather was chilly. I wore jeans and a sweater. This theater is in a closed high school. It is completely casual. Come as you are! .

First time at the Citadel Theater in Lake Forest. It is located in the now closed Lake Forest West High School. Great little theater. I expect its capacity is about 140 It has 3 sections the center face on to the stage and the other two at about a 45 degree bend. great cushioned armed theater chairs and each row a step up from the one in front of it. We ate at FroggY's in Highwood. Highwood is 5 minutes and probably has a dozen really good dinning restaurants within a 3 block setting.

I did not need any snacks or drinks and so did not notice if there were any for sale.
