About

On this guided walking tour (approx. 2 mi.), get ready for a solid overview of Chicago's longstanding role in film!


Your Chicago movie highlights walking tour starts outside the Chicago Cultural Center, next to a bronze cow with a few secrets to share, one involving TV talk show host and actress Oprah Winfrey.


Then, you'll descend into the bowels of Chicago's Millennium Station, where The Dark Knight once set up camp to film that now-famous Batpod scene.


Other stops along your way include Daley Plaza, the Marquette Building, Calder's Flamingo, and The Berghoff Restaurant, all of which we will relate to Chicago's thriving film scene.

Virtual Tour FAQs

How Do I Watch?

Unless listed otherwise, our virtual tours take place live on Facebook. Simply visit Chicago Movie Tours' Facebook Page at the scheduled time, and click PLAY on the live video.

 

(You do not need a Facebook account to watch live programs.)

Can I Get a Reminder?

Yes! 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 some of Chicago Movie Tours' virtual events include clips that may trigger social media censors, Facebook could 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?

If you'd like to make a donation or tip, you may do so either 

Your generous tips and donations—which help to cover costs of livestreaming software, archive and research memberships, on-location travel for virtual tour video footage, and more—ensure Chicago Movie Tours can continue creating free and affordable in-person and virtual events.

 

Thank you! 💙
