I just finished interviewing “A Mighty Heart” director Michael Winterbottom to find that my correspondent, Phil Tadros of MetroProper, has quickly delivered on my request.

Because I was downtown and the coffee shop he owns (Dollop) is right where “The Dark Knight” filmed yesterday and all day today, I asked him to take a few pictures of the action. He did better.

Here’s some pre-action, sneak-peak video to give you a sense of the scene.


By the way, the “Rory’s First Kiss” you see referenced in this video is the fake working title for “The Dark Knight”. The working title is “Batman Begins 2”.

5:03 p.m. update: I asked Phil for set footage. Because he knows friends everywhere, he went into a nearby apartment for a glimpse into what it looks like and the changes being made to the surrounding area.

  • Cher Show, The

    CHICAGO – Cherilyn Sarkisian… yes, that is her birth name… is the redoubtable Cher, and it’s perfect timing for her to have a jukebox musical tribute. “The Cher Show,” covering three eras/songs of the six-decade career of Cher, opens for a Chicago preview before its Broadway run, from June 12th through July 25th, 2018.

  • ThroatPunch

    CHICAGO – The provocative title of Sharon Krome’s new stage play, “ThroatPunch,” does not contain that particular fight technique. But it does have standout performances by the three person cast, as they make their way in Chicago, circa 1983, amid their emerging twentysomething punk rock attitude. The World Premiere of the show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through June 3rd, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
