This selection of short films from the Chicago Film Archives explores the architectural and design history and legacy of mid-century Chicago. An exceptional cinematic tour of our great metropolis, the program weaves together dynamic “city-symphony” films, which celebrate the city’s unmistakable skyline; an ode to stainless steel; and an admiring portrait of Louis Sullivan’s Stock Exchange building.

This is a free event!  No ticket required. This event is being held in the Claudia Cassidy Theater at the Chicago Cultural Center
