Movies on the Bayou: Live on Location in Louisiana!

Float virtually with us down a Louisiana bayou and learn why movies are filmed on these mystical bodies of water

About Virtual Tour





Hop in a boat and float down the bayou with our founder, Kelli, as she visits her home state of Louisiana!

On this live virtual tour, you'll take a short ride down Bayou Desiard (pronounced duh-seared). Along the way, you'll

  • learn about bayous and their functions

  • see indigenous trees and maybe an alligator (!)

  • discover why certain movies are filmed on or near these mystical bodies of water

This free virtual tour will be held on Facebook Live. Note: in the case of bad weather, we'll need to cancel this virtual tour.

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! 💙
