We all know Los Angeles is the capital of the film industry. Hollywood is full of glitz, glamor, and movie sets. But, did you know our very own hometown of Chicago has a long history of filmmaking? In fact, the Windy City was established as a center for film before Hollywood became the go-to location for all things movies and television.

Starting in the 1980s, Chicago saw a rebirth of film and the Chicago film industry was rejuvenated by movies such as Blues Brothers, Sixteen Candles, and The Dark Knight. More recently, Chicago has been the filming location for Superman: Man of Steel, Divergent, and Transformers.

The Chicago television industry is also booming, with more tv shows being filmed in Chicago than ever before. In fact, the city is now the setting for three very popular television shows – Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Chicago Med. All filmed in Chicago, these shows have helped boost the Chicago television industry. Other popular shows that film in our hometown include Shameless, Empire, and Sense8.
