Park West is the name of a music venue in Chicago, Illinois, located at the corner of Armitage Avenue and Clark Street. The theater was originally named Lane Court when it opened in the 1920s, when it mostly showed movies to a capacity of 1000. After some time, the theater became a burlesque house, and later a theater for adult films. In 1977, the theater was renamed to Park West, and it became a concert venue. The 750-seat theater hosts a variety of bands, most of which perform classic rock or alternative rock. Some bands and musicians that have played there include Tina Turner, the Indigo Girls, The Eurythmics, Prince, and Porcupine Tree.

    I think they leave it up to the performer. I saw Jonathan Coulton and Rachael Yamagata there recently and both times the staff was just fine with people having cameras, and mine is particularly noticeable. At Rachael Yamagata's show they asked that people not use flash, though.

    This is answer is really late, but for anyone else who wants to know: they don't check bags for cameras, but they have security people walking around looking for people using them. I watched them take a girl's digital camera away, delete the photos she had taken, and then hand it back. I saw them do the same to girl with a cell phone. It doesn't seem worth the trouble unless you can bring in a small camera and shoot with a high ISO without the screen on.
