“Vintage theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Love the Tivoli Theatre! First run movies are shown in this classic building for a reduced price. We've enjoyed the organ music in the past but didn't have it on a recent visit. Sure hope it hasn't been discontinued!

“Great Family Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Took my grandson to this movie theater. It brought back good memories of other old-fashioned theaters (Brighton and Ramova in Chicago) that have since closed. Plus you get free refills on popcorn and sodas, what else could you ask for!

“The theatre is old and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

My wife and I go to Downers Grove on a regular basis as we used to live in Downers Grove. The Tivoli Theatre is located in a picturesque downtown Downers Grove location. There's a shop on the corner that has music playing which you can hear as you walk down the sidewalk. The theatre is old and beautiful. What a great blend of old and new. The Tivoli Theatre gives free refills on any size popcorn or drink, and a Classic Rewards card can enhance your value.

Apparently, according to it's website:

‘The Tivoli Theatre, located in downtown Downers Grove, was the first Classic Cinemas theatre. The theatre pre-dates Classic Cinemas by 50 years, having opened on Christmas Day 1928 as one of the first theatres in the country built to show "talkies".’
