Description

Chicago Filmmakers recently completed an intensive rehab of a retired 1928 firehouse. The 45-year-old not-for-profit cultural group is continuing to raise the substantial funds needed to equip this ornate structure with a 75-person movie theater for screenings of independent films and documentaries. The space also includes administrative offices and classrooms for public courses.
