Chicago is getting a new theatre. The old Fullerton State Bank will get a multi-million-dollar renovation and become the Lincoln Park Theatre. The new building will become the home of the Porchlight Music Theatre, as well as other companies.

The building will have a 299-seat state-of-the-art theatre and will open in the in the fall of 2009.

The architect who designed the original building in 1923 built an identical one in New York City's Union Square. That building has also been turned into a theater.
