It’s Always Movie Night at River East Center

by Matt B on July 7th, 2008

If you've ever caught a movie downtown, you've probably been to River East Center. This skyscraper was completed in 2001 and stands 644 feet tall (196 m) with 58 floors. The original design called for 4 small spires at the edge of each side of the roof and would have made the tower Chicago's tallest all-residential building. A second tower was planned but never constructed.

Most people who visit this structure though are visiting the ground level's AMC Theatre, the largest cinema downtown with 21 screens. There are plenty of restaurants in the area, so it's a good place for a date night's dinner and a movie.
