Since 1942, Edward Hopper's Nighthawks has graced the walls of the Art Institute of Chicago. People have travelled across the world to see this depiction of a 24-hour diner with its four subjects, each seemingly lost in thought.
In 2018, Nighthawks showed up on a storefront in Chicago's Irving Park neighborhood. Well, sort of. This version — with its nods to Chicago movies and culture — emits a slightly different feel.
On this free virtual walking tour with Chicago Movie Tours, experience Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, Chicago style.
Virtual Tour FAQs

Can I Get a Reminder?
Sure! If you follow Chicago Movie Tours on Facebook and allow notifications on your device, you will be notified when we go live. If you'd like an email reminder, register here for the event at least 24 hours before it begins.
Can I Watch Later?
Virtual tours may not be available after their livestream. Because Chicago Movie Tours' virtual events often include film clips that may trigger social media censors, Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter may remove the videos after the livestream, even though the material is considered fair use. In short: it's a good idea to watch live.
