CHICAGO, IL — Monday’s issue of the USA Today took a look at all things cinematic in the Windy City. The profile includes a list of Chicago’s contributions to film history, prominent film festivals, famous movie moments, and a few of the city’s better known movie houses (like the Biograph and Gene Siskel Film Center).
What are your favorite Chicago movie moments? (Comment below.)
Anything from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off — can’t believe they didn’t mention this one!
And, of course, another classic of the same era — Risky Business!
I also read the other day that the Wachowski brothers grew up in Chicago and have peppered Windy City references throughout the Matrix trilogy.
