The Lake Theater in Oak Park Il.     The Lake Theater was designed by architect Thomas Lamb and has been a downtown Oak Park fixture for over 75 years.   The original main screen remains with 6 additional screens being added when the theater expanded over the years. The Lake Theater has added interior decorative details that were rescued from other old theaters, is an excellent example of Art Deco Architecture and one of the many places that makes Oak Park a special place to call home.
