Public Enemies Movie Filming, Lincoln Park, Chicago

Paul Baker* alerted me to this photo opportunity and on my bike commute home I stopped to take a few photographs. Public Enemies, a movie about John Dillinger, is being filmed on Lincoln Avenue near the Biograph Theater. A whole bunch of the building fronts were redone to look like the 1930’s. Johnny Depp plays Dillinger in the movie and in real life Dillinger was shot to death outside the Biograph, so I’m sure if you’re patient enough and hang around that block you have a good chance of spotting Depp.

I thought it was funny how the businesses were trying to stress that they’re still open. Fiesta Mexicana (we’d been there with Paul Baker and Kate before) has their temporary sign hanging on the Chinese restaurant storefront. And did you notice the Qdoba sign?

*Paul Baker has a good grouop of photos of the set that was featured on Chicagoist.
