All Aboard! Movie Dogs & Chicago’s Oldest Pet Cemetery
Walk (virtually) across Illinois’ oldest pet cemetery as we discuss the first onscreen dogs, define “cinema of attraction,” and consider Hollywood’s response to animal protection. Led by movie historian Kelli Marshal of Chicago Movie Tours, this virtual tour showcases Chicago’s historic Union Station and the special way it connects us all.
