Egyptian Theatre BOO’ze & Spirits Tours return this fall

DeKALB – The Egyptian Theatre’s BOO’ze & Spirits Tours will return this fall at 8 p.m. Sept. 24, Oct. 15 and Nov. 19.

The Egyptian Theatre is known as one of the most haunted buildings in town and in the top 10 haunted theaters in Illinois, according to a news release. Theater staff will share secrets and stories during this “balcony to backstage” tour that focuses not only on the history of the 90-year-old building, but also the theater’s ghostly guests.

The tour, which is in the dark using only flashlights, starts in the lobby and will include climbing stairs and extended periods of standing. Doors open 30 minutes prior to the start of the tour. Everyone must bring a flashlight and minors must be accompanied by an adult. This evening tour will last approximately 2 hours and tickets are limited. Drinks will be available at the concession stand.

Tickets cost $30 and can be purchased online at or by calling 815-758-1215.

The Egyptian Theatre, located at 135 N. Second St. in downtown DeKalb, is owned and operated by Preservation of Egyptian Theatre Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. For more information, visit
