About

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

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
