Take a trip back in time to 1977 Chicago Niko Apostal 08/25/15


The Chicago Film Archives recently unearthed and digitized a 15-minute tourism video that brings 1977 Chicago alive once more! We can’t resist the retro music, the authoritative tone of the narrator compelling us to, “Pause, traveler,” or the shots of Chicago as it looked in the height of the disco era. (Many of these sights are more or less unchanged today, while others are almost unrecognizable.)

What’s your favorite thing about this 1977 Chicago tourism video?
