About

Named for U.S. President and Civil War General Ulysses S. Grant, Chicago's Grant Park comprises several city locations: Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Museum Campus. 


But in 1968, as Netflix's The Trial of the Chicago 7 points out, Grant Park saw major clashes between the Chicago Police Department and demonstrators during the Democratic National Convention. 


We'll consider the 2020 film, Grant Park's history, and public art on this short virtual tour.

 
 

Virtual Tour FAQs

How Do I Watch?

For virtual events on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter, visit any of those pages at the scheduled time and click on the live video. For virtual events on Zoom, please register. On or before the day of the program, you will receive an email with a link to join.


Can I Get a Reminder?

For livestream events, if you follow Chicago Movie Tours on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter and allow notifications on your device, you will be notified when we go live. If you'd like an email reminder, register for the event 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.


How Do I Tip?

Nearly all of Chicago Movie Tours' virtual events are FREE to attend! If you'd like to make a donation or tip, you may do so when you register, via our donation page, or directly through Venmo or Paypal. Thank you!
