A massive redevelopment project to revitalize Waukegan's lakefront area included the reopening of the Genesee Performing Arts Theatre. The Genesee is a concert hall and movie theatre, which originally opened in 1927, closed its doors in 1989, and then underwent a $25 million renovation to reopen again in December 2004. Many new popular restaurants have also opened in the lakefront business district and historic buildings dotting the downtown area have been restored. “ArtWauk” is a popular event that takes place the third Saturday of every month, featuring paintings, sculptures, food, comedy and music in Waukegan's art district. “Holiday Wauk” is the community's annual holiday festival.
The iconic late comedian, Jack Benny, and science fiction writer Ray Bradbury have both called Waukegan home. The city's Amstutz Expressway has been used as a shooting location for the films Groundhog Day, The Blues Brothers, and Batman Begins.
