News About This Theater
The YMCA Hotel opened in 1915, located on Wabash Street in the South Loop, designed by architect Robert C. Berlin. Eleven years later, Berlin designed an addition to the hotel, in a similar style to his original.
In 1988, the building was converted over to mixed residential and retail use, including a multiplex cinema operated by Cineplex Odeon, located in a new addition to the original former YMCA Hotel building. The cinema opened December 21, 1988. The whole structure was known as Burnham Plaza.
After it was closed by the Meridian chain in 2000, the Burnham Plaza Cinemas were reopened by the Village Theatres chain, showing first-run features, but at bargain prices.
The Burnham Plaza Cinemas closed for good in September 2005. The building has since been converted into office space.
