As motion pictures developed as an art form, storefront nickelodeons gave way to opulent movie palaces. The Chicago-based Rapp & Rapp architectural firm, headed by brothers Cornelius and George, designed over 400 of the nation’s most elegant showplaces, including the Chicago Theater and the Rialto Square in Joliet.

For several decades, Chicago was sporadically a featured location in popular movies, but with the success of The Blues Brothers, the number of film shot on location here increased significantly. Today, Cinespace Studios on the city’s west side is the largest film studio outside of Hollywood. Dave Clark will take us on a historical tour of the movie industry in Chicago.
