Description

Chicago Filmmakers recently completed an intensive rehab of a retired 1928 firehouse. The 43-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 sparkling new classrooms for an upcoming slate of public courses.
