If you are looking for things to do in Chicago this weekend, you are in luck as there are some great events to choose from and here are some of our top picks.
“Opening The Vaults: Wonders Of The 1893 World’s Fair” – The Field Museum was birthed out of The World’s Columbian Exposition and now, 120 years after its opening, the Museum is opening up its time capsule and putting objects that have never been on display now on exhibition.
The Seventh Annual B Movie Celebration – Just in time for Halloween, The B Movie Celebration welcomes actor Robert Englund on Friday and Sunday to introduce the film that made him one of the foremost experts when discussing the horror genre, A Nightmare On Elm Street. The three day film festival also presents several short and feature films, including Rewind This!, a documentary about the popularity of VHS. More information is available at bmoviecelebration.com
Chicago International Children’s Film Festival 2013 – While the title of this Festival suggests that is primarily geared towards kid audiences, there are plenty of things for adults to participate in as well.
