Why Choose the Egyptian Theatre?


We are in the center of downtown DeKalb surrounded by over a dozen unique restaurants and bars within easy walking distance for your guests to enjoy for lunch, dinner, or a networking social after your event. Over 1,200 free public parking spaces within walking distance of the Theatre.


We have strong working relationships with the DeKalb County Convention and Visitors Bureau, DeKalb Chamber of Commerce, City of DeKalb, and Northern Illinois University. We can help arrange catering, hotel accommodations, tours and activities in the area, and other special requests for your event.

Ambiance & Atmosphere

No need to spend money creating a theme and decorating: it’s already built right in. The Egyptian Theatre has even been named one of the Top 20 Architectural Treasures in Illinois.

Food & Beverage

No in-house catering requirements mean we can help connect you with the perfect caterer for your event. We have a recently renovated bar / concession stand that can handle any size crowd for cocktails or just popcorn and soda for an afternoon snack.


We’ve got you covered with an in-house sound system, microphones, digital projector, theatrical lighting, and professional technical staff ready to make your event run smoothly.


At the Egyptian, we know that no two events are ever the same. We are ready to help you plan your one-day conferences, half-day meetings, one-hour presentations, networking events, and parties.


A change in setting can inspire creative thinking and leave your attendees excited for what is next.
