As a restored, historic theater right in the center of Chicago’s historic Hyde Park neighborhood, The Harper Theater is a space where community happens. Therefore, we have woven an artisanal café & coffee shop option right into your film-going experience at The Harper Theater by launching The Harper Theater Café.

Chicago is a city full of coffee shops and cafes, coffee roasters and other specialist artisanal producers. It’s a culture that thrives in this city and we’re making that integral to The Harper Theater experience. We serve beans from Chicago’s own specialty roaster, Metropolis Coffee Company, using top-of-the-line equipment and professional baristas to make sure your beverage experience is equal to your cinematic experience.

The Café serves tea and coffee, iced or hot, as well as a number of bakery options.  Before the show, after the show—during the show—we’ll have you covered. We think you’ll appreciate this unique, café-style approach here at the historic Harper Theater, and we look forward to serving you.
