About

On this free virtual tour, learn more about Quincy Jones as you visit his childhood home and a mural that features his likeness. 


NOTE: Due to the violent nature of Jones' backstory, this virtual tour may not be appropriate for children.

 

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.
