What’s On This Weekend In Chicago | 4 - 6 March 2016

Picture of Culture Trip
Updated: 7 March 2016
Chicago isn’t ready for warm weather. Chicagoans may want it and they may go coatless the moment the temperature gets slightly warmer, but we here at the Culture Trip are fine with staying indoors and waiting for spring to truly begin. So this weekend all of our top picks are the best of Chicago’s indoor cultural offerings, from cinema and live theatre, to art shows and once-in-a-lifetime exhibitions. After all, just because it’s still winter doesn’t mean you have to stay at home.

FRIDAY

THEATRE | If/Then at the Oriental Theatre
