Filmed in Chicago

Location scouts are loving on Chicago these days. The cast of NBC’s “Chicago Fire” shows up all over town; in April, cameras rolled for young adult sci-fi novel-to-screen “Divergent”; and later this summer, “Transformers 4” is scheduled to wreak simulated havoc for several weeks. What makes Chicago such a camera-ready city? Find out in the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Lights, Camera, Architecture! walking tour. Get a glimpse of famous film sites from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “The Untouchables,” “Blues Brothers” and more. Recall the scenes and then see the real architecture that served as the memorable backdrops. If you miss the two dates—June 1 and 22—never fear: CAF has dozens more tours, including the popular Skyscrapers & More Trolley Tour that rolls around the city every Friday, Saturday and Monday.
