Across Chicago, we're hunkered down. As we stay home to save lives, limiting ourselves to only necessary trips outside and commuting only to and from essential jobs, we're all adjusting to a new and changing sense of normal. With so much more time spent at home, we're all turning to the online world for education, enrichment, and entertainment in a way we may not have before.
If you are looking for a new way to explore the city without leaving home, the Chicago Park District is pleased to offer you this collection of locally-made and Chicago-focused films from the Chicago Onscreen collection. Going all the way back to the beginning to bring a sampling of the dozens of films screened in Chicago parks since 2014.
Each week, from April 21-May 25, the Chicago Park District will share four or five films. They are free and available to watch at any time during the week. Filmmakers from across the city, and beyond, have graciously shared these films, and viewers encourage you to check out their other work or see what they're working on now.
