It’s 106 miles to Chicago …
Directed by John Landis, The Blues Brothers is, as Roger Ebert put it in a 1980 review, “some weird movie.” It’s certainly one of the most iconic films set in Chicago (and the surrounding suburbs).
From the Joliet Correctional Center to Maxwell Street; Bronzeville to Lower Wacker Drive, no location is safe from utter destruction.
In honor of that destruction — and to celebrate the movie’s 35th anniversary — we made you this:
The Blues Brothers Tour, a guide to the Windy City inspired by perhaps its most iconic film.
For further reading on the making of of the movie, we highly recommend diving into Ned Zeman’s piece for Vanity Fair.
