Did you know The Marx Brothers comedy team lived in Chicago for more than a decade? And were you aware the films they created spoke directly to the experiences of early 20th-century immigrants?

Let's get the scoop!

On this virtual tour, you'll walk with Chicago Movie Tours to the Marx Brothers' Chicago home and learn about a subgenre of film called anarchic comedy. You'll also take a quick ride down a slice of historic Route 66 and see where the Marx family once owned a chicken farm. (Yes, really, a chicken farm.)

To watch the full virtual walking tour (approx. 25 min.), join our movie club!
