Oh, but isn't Chicago just too expensive because of Daley?

Maybe a filmaker can make a movie in a hardcore republican suburb of the city & call it "Living in Loserville".

Did you not read the part about the 30% tax credit, or does your brain just pick and choose what it wants to comprehend while ignoring the most pertinent facts?

People who are collecting unemployment should have the first rights to jobs as extras for these movies. Pay for extras is not much $50 to $100 but it includes meals. why should these jobs even though they are temprary be reserved only for union actors?

They're not reserved for union actors. Anyone who sends their photo and info to a casting agent has a shot.

This is good news for our great city. I wish our wheather was better but people are really going to the movies. We need more services to promote other industries to find out that Chicago is a great town to invest money.
