About

Backed by video footage of three silent-era theaters, hear about the 1918 flu pandemic's effect on Chicago movie houses and what the owners did to survive.

This virtual walking tour from Chicago Movie Tours includes HD video footage of silent-era Chicago movie theaters that survived the pandemic. It also covers a brief history of the Spanish Flu. Finally, the event looks in-depth at how small and large Chicago movie houses were affected financially by this event—and how they pulled through.

A recording (1080p HD) will be available afterward to those who’ve registered.
