Take a trip down “movie memory lane” with this fun new tour!


That’s why we’re all interested in movies — those ones that make you feel, you still think about.
— Tim Burton

About this Tour Route…

On this fun autumn-time tour, you'll visit the exact filming locations of well-loved and famous movies like “The Untouchables,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” and many more! Why ride in a bus past these places when you can BE in those places and recreate those scenes?

Starting near Millennium Park, you'll explore movie locations for movies like "The Blues Brothers," "The Untouchables," and "Adventures in Babysitting," standing beneath the gorgeous stained glass dome where Eliot Ness chases Frank Nitti, and walking through the plaza where Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues crash their beat-up old police car!

Follow your guide on a delightful walk to some of the best movie filming locations in downtown Chicago. You'll stand in front of the Art Deco masterpiece where Batman flips his motorcycle (the “Batpod”) to face the Joker waiting for him down the street. You'll descend the staircase where they filmed the famous baby carriage scene from "The Untouchables." You'll end with a walk down the street where the lively parade scene in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" took place — maybe you can recreate some of the dancing!
