The Cinema Chatham Powered by Emagine in Chicago, Illinois has opened to the public.

Located about ten miles south of downtown Chicago, just off the 87th Street exit on the Dan Ryan Expressway (I-94), the theater was previously known as the Studio Movie Grill - Chatham. It closed in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Studio Movie Grill filed for bankruptcy in October 2020, which put the future of all its locations at risk. In April, it was announced that Studio Movie Grill would not be reopening this location.

The theater's page on Emagine's website lists the following amenities at the Chatham location:

  • Enhanced Concessions - stone-fired pizzas, hot dogs, soft pretzel bites
  • Self-serve Coke Freestyle Machine
  • Gourmet Popcorn - Regular, cheddar, caramel popcorn, as well as OlivEpop, which is a blend of olive oil and dressed with sea salt

While the change to the Studio Movie Grill brand back in 2017 brought in-theater dining, it does not appear that particular amenity was continued in the new operation. An article in The Chicago Crusader (see below) says that the 40-seat bar remains.

To see what's playing and when, and to buy tickets online, please visit the Showtimes page for the Cinema Chatham Powered by Emagine.
