When you think about seeing the Richard J. Daley Center in a movie, you may immediately think of the 1980 classic, The Blues Brothers. Certainly, no film since has featured the Daley Center so prominently, or with so much artillery. But in fact, the Daley Center has been seen in several films, and many celebrities including Sandra Bullock, Bruce Willis, Will Ferrell, and Harrison Ford have walked the halls or stepped on the Plaza. The Daley Center has seen helicopter landings, armored tanks, police chases, bus crashes, gun-wielding criminals and elderly characters hogging the pay phones.

If you are interested in filming at Daley Plaza, please contact the Daley Center’s Special Events Manager at 312-603-5564 for more information. All filming requests should also be directed to the Chicago Film Office at 312-744-6415.
