CHICAGO -- The training center for Chicago's famous Second City comedy group is expanding.

The Second City Training Center announced Tuesday that it will lease a former movie theater next to its location on the city's North Side. The expansion would double the comedy school's space to include new classrooms, student theaters, voice-over studios and on-camera training areas.

Second City says the space should be finished and students can start using it by spring of 2015.

The Second City improv comedy group has been in Chicago for more than 50 years. Its alumni include actors like John Belushi, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis.
