Somewhere in Time: Behind the Scenes

For our first Chicago Movie Club event, go behind the scenes of 'Somewhere in Time' with the president of the movie's fan club

About Virtual Tour





Filmed in Chicago and on Mackinac Island, Somewhere in Time has gained a cult following over the years. The 1980 movie is beloved by many romantic movie fans, including Jo Addie, who will join Chicago Movie Tours live to talk about her personal experiences with the film.

Addie was an extra in Somewhere in Time, and she and her husband have worked as extras in other Chicago-based movies like The Blues Brothers.

Currently, Addie serves as the president of the Somewhere in Time fan club and the editor of a 30-year-old journal devoted to the film. She is also the architect behind The Somewhere in Time Weekend at Grand Hotel, an annual event held at the Michigan location where the movie was filmed.

Prepare your questions about Somewhere in Time for this unique live conversation!

An on-demand replay will be available for 1 week after the event.

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! 💙
