(AllHipHop News) Kanye West continues to spread his riches around.

The Chicago rapper is reportedly forking over $1 million to help renovate the legendary Regal Theater.

According to the Chicago-Sun Times, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are actively involved in helping to restore the Regal, which is 91-years-old.

“Kanye West has committed to investing $1 million into the Regal Theater project and has already invested enough for us to get some of the basic utilities on in the building, such as the electricity,” owner Jerald Gary told Perri Small of WVON 1690-AM, reports The Chicago-Sun Times.

“We’re very excited, it’s a long time coming, and we’re happy that someone has stepped up to the plate,” Gary said.

The couple are already using their power to push The Regal into the mainstream. The theater is slated to be featured in some upcoming episodes of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."
