About

Celebrate the 1980 movie The Blues Brothers as we explore its backstories, mix of Hollywood genres, and impact on Chicago-based filmmaking. The three-part, hour-long, interactive talk considers:

  • Backstories of the 1980 movie and the Blues Brothers' act, made famous on SNL.
  • Conventional Hollywood genres and 10 ways The Blues Brothers, for better or worse, insists on mixing them.
  • The movie’s impact on Chicago-based filmmaking, with a special nod to Jane Byrne, who served as Chicago’s mayor during the film’s production.

Offered in person via the Glenside Public Library District. You will be redirected to the library's site to register. See you there!
