The Egyptian Theatre currently welcomes over 40,000 people through our doors each year. These patrons come from 36 different states and 47 counties in Illinois resulting in over $2 million in direct economic impact. Current projections show year-round programming will increase attendance to over 54,000 with a total direct economic impact in excess of $3 million. This is an increase of 14,000 patrons and $1 million in economic impact. Those numbers are anticipated to grow through the years as year-round programming ramps up. Your support will help us Expand Beyond 90 Years!
