- Scene from Bollywood Movie 'Dhoom 3' shooting in Chicago
Everyone is a critic, particularly when it comes to movies, and nowhere is that more true than in Chicago - after all, a television show with two guys arguing about films started here more than three decades ago and went on to become part of the national Zeitgeist. Chicago's gritty streets look back to a time when gangsters ruled. Its massive skyscrapers and overhead trains lend themselves to a perfect Gotham City.
Chicago is owned by the world and quite welcoming to Hollywood when it comes to filming movies and TV shows here. There are great landmarks and great places to shoot, such as beneath the L-train tracks right in downtown Chicago or beneath the downtown streets on Lower Wacker. Since 1980, more than 1100 feature films and television productions have been shot in Chicago contributing $2 billion in local revenue. Audiences around the world travel Chicago�s streets through its portrayal in filmed entertainment. Movies shot in town capture a piece of Chicago in some iconic, evocative, or magical way. These compelling images help to generate tourism, promote international business, and establish a new global awareness of Chicago's landscape and culture.
The Windy City of Chicago has had its fair share of films set within its city limits, many of them truly memorable. With Chicago as the backdrop, these films are already ahead of the film pack. Chicago is truly a remarkable city for filmmaking.
