Reserve a Marquee Message at the Lake


It's the perfect Oak Park photo op. Do it as a backdrop for a photo shoot, for your son's birthday, as a grand gesture for an anniversary, or just do it for someone who needs cheering up. Everyone loves seeing their name in lights.


You can reserve a digital message on the front of the Classic Cinemas Lake marquee and select from a variety of templates. Messages will be up during the hours of the marquee and will be displayed for 20 seconds in rotation. Your message is guaranteed to display at least every five minutes and very likely more frequently.

  • Messages are limited to personal and non-profit promotion - businesses are not accepted
  • Personal messages are available for $100 per day
  • Non-profit organizations can book a maximum of three days at a discount of $50 per day, $100 for additional days

The marquee hours are currently from 7am - 10pm Sunday -Thursday and 7am - midnight Friday - Saturday. Organizations working with a designer can submit their own creative - you don't need it to reserve your date however.


We need at least four days notice, but you can reserve a date online 30 days in advance. We will respond within 24-48 business hours to confirm or discuss your request. Once it's confirmed, we'll send a proof of your custom message for your review and coordinate payment.
