“We live in a box of space and time. Movies are windows in its walls. They allow us to enter other minds–not simply in the sense of identifying with the characters, although that is an important part of it, but by seeing the world as another person sees it.”
In honor of the recent passing of Chicago native and the beloved and highly-respected film critic for America, Roger Ebert and the 15th Annual Roger Ebert Film Fest (Ebertfest) opening today (through April 21), we have created a gallery of movies made in Chicago and nearby locations. If you want to try to guess the movies and locations don’t look at the captions.
