On this 90-minute guided walking tour (approx. 2 mi.), get ready for a solid overview of Chicago's longstanding role in film!

Sure, you will experience the expected (e.g., gangsters, Batman, Ferris Bueller). But you will also encounter lesser-known subjects like silent film tie-ins and film noir. 

And along the way, you will see some of the city's most well-known works of art and architecture, and learn about their links to cinema. 

This one's a multi-layered tour to help you discover Chicago through film!
