Chicago Theatre Main Floor Seating


Sitting Here for a Concert

The Main Floor at the Chicago Theatre consists of 9 sections, including the Pit section. The Pit section only has 4 rows, and row AAA is right against the stage. For a better and more comfortable view it might be better to sit in rows CCC or DDD, since the stage is so close. The other Main Floor sections are labeled Right and Left. With sections 1-4 Right and sections 1-4 Left. Sections 1R and 1L are the shortest rows with only 18 rows in each section. With that said, the view is not the best in these two sections as you will be on the side and not be able to see the entire stage too well.

For the most optimal views at the Chicago Theatre seats in sections 3L, 4L, 3R, and 4R are the way to go. Although these sections have the most rows of all the sections on the main floor, the center views of the stage make it so that there is really not a bad seat, even further back.

Except for the pit, in each section on the main floor there is a support beam in row R. However, the support beams are located at the beginning and end of the aisle, so they do not cause any obstructed views.

Also, in row M of the Main Floor is where the Mezzanine overhang comes over. Even while sitting in the last row on the Main Floor, the overhang does not obstruct the view of the stage.  -

  • "Main Floor"

    (Main Floor 4R) - -

    Good visibility to the stage

  • "Way back in last row, had to look between people in front of me"

    (Main Floor 2R) - -

    I will say that for being the last row in the main floor section 2R these seats weren't the worst, but they weren't the best either. It was hard to make out the performers from way back here, but I had no issue hearing the show. One thing that was annoying was that I had to constantly move my head t... is the best way to search, compare and buy tickets. Select an event to find out why!
