Virginia Theatre in downtown Champaign, Illinois has brought live theatrical and cinematic entertainment to the Champaign community since it first opened in 1921. The venue has continuously delivered on the promise of the country’s best entertainment hosting movies, plays from the world’s best acting troupes, concerts, and the world-famous Ebertfest, presented by the UIUC College of Media. The Champaign Park District has taken ownership of the venue since 2000 and uses the Virginia Theatre as a historic performing arts center and movie palace that brings back the best Broadway experiences that you can find outside of New York.

To this day, over 1,000 fans come for every production and performance that graces their stage for timeless entertainment that stands the test of time. From concerts, stage plays, dance recitals, film showings, children’s events and more, The Virginia Theatre has become a symbol for arts and entertainment in Illinois. But providing high-quality entertainment isn’t the only reason to order tickets to an upcoming Virginia Theatre event, as it has a key role in supporting the vibrant and growing Champaign community by providing a space for up and coming artists and performers to hone their craft.

Even if you don’t live in Champaign, there’s no reason to miss out on the fun. Movie-lovers and theatre-goers from across the country fly into Champaign every year for big theatrical presentations, the Roger Ebert’s Film Festival, and more. Your ticket brings you one step closer to experiencing a legitimate theatre, movie house, and vaudeville experience. Best of all, the venue has been fully restored so that you can experience The Virginia Theatre as movie-lovers and theatre fans have on its first opening days in the early 1920s.
