About

Situated about 10 miles outside downtown Chicago, the Altenheim was established in 1885 as a home to care for German elderly. Much later, it became a "backlot" for the Hollywood movies Harry and Tonto (1974), The Package (1989), and The Babe (1992). Join Chicago Movie Tours on this virtual walking tour as you roam the exterior of The Altenheim and discover how the property is used onscreen in three very different ways.

Free to Chicago Movie Club members, this event is part of our ongoing series 9:40 ON FRIDAYS. Hop on board, and jumpstart your weekend with fresh insights and captivating tales about Chicago and the world of cinema. Topics change weekly!
