It was 31 years ago today that movie-goers first saw “The Blues Brothers” in theaters. Now Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues are coming to Wrigley Field for a special movie screening on July 6 at 8:30 p.m.
John Belushi’s death on March 5, 1982 cut short a career that had burned quickly and brightly with the actor’s sketch work on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” and in the still-classic films “Animal House” and “The Blues Brothers.”
Wrecking crews will be finishing the job that The Blues Brothers started more than 30 years ago – demolishing the Dixie Square Mall in south suburban Harvey.
Demolition is finally underway at the Dixie Square Mall in Harvey, more than 33 years after the mall closed.
Demolition of the decaying remnants of Harvey’s Dixie Square Mall could begin by year’s end.
There just ain’t no other place like Chicago. (Don’t judge my grammar now, I’m on a roll here.) We’re radicool (made that word up, sweet, right?), and here are five great movies that recognize that.
Not everyone is happy about a tribute to the Blues Brothers that’s coming to the Chicago this summer.
