Through the partnership of Invest Aurora and The Community Builders, a new development is being created within two conjoined historic buildings in downtown Aurora. The Aurora Arts Centre will be located in downtown Aurora on Stolp Island, also home to the Paramount Arts Centre the Hollywood Casino, as well as the Riverfront Playhouse. The Aurora Arts Centre will be a natural pairing with one of the most respected Chicagoland theaters, the Paramount Theatre.
The new Aurora Arts Centre total project will offer:
*AVAILABLE - 4,000 SF Restaurant adjacent to Paramount Theatre
*25,000 SF Paramount School of Performing Arts (SOPA)
*8,000 SF Parmount Theatre rehearsal area
*38 Affordable Apartments
The Aurora Arts Centre Restaurant will offer a much needed pre- and post-show dining destination to over 300,000 yearly patrons of the Paramount Theatre. The restaurant will provide a fine dining environment, allowing the theatre crowd to enjoy a full day/evening of entertainment with a high-end dining experience. Additional revenue opportunities will include catering for weddings, social and corporate events.
The Aurora Arts Centre will be located in downtown Aurora on Stolp Island at the intersection of E. Galena Blvd. and S. Stolp Avenue.
