CHICAGO – “Secret Scoop,” who first informed me of the upcoming Brach’s Candy building implosion for “The Dark Knight,” at 1:11 p.m. on Friday submitted updated information about this historic scene.

It is scheduled to happen between 10:30 a.m. and noon on Aug. 29.

This will be two buildings. The larger building is to be filled with flammable liquids and the second smaller, four-story building will be imploded.

This is the last big stunt for the film to be shot.

By the way, [Friday night’s] filming features five SWAT guys being thrown out of a window of a high-rise to hang while Batman goes about his business.

He doesn’t want to kill them. He just wants get them out of the way.

1:27 p.m. update: In a follow-up e-mail, I asked my source about the certainty of this new information. “Secret Scoop” said:

I just got off the phone with my contact before I e-mailed you. I even asked if that could be a false date just to throw off fans. [It’s real.]

4:10 p.m. update: Several people have written in asking me the address for this site. It is 401 N. Cicero Ave. in Chicago.

  • Kid Thing, The

    CHICAGO – Like the awesome Engine Who Could, the mighty Nothing Without a Company stage crafters have constructed another triumph at their new home in Berger Mansion on Chicago’s north side. “The Kid Thing” – written by Sarah Gubbins – is a terse, convincing and emotional play about fear, identity and breeding, and it is performed by its cast of five with utter authenticity. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Berger North Mansion through April 15th, 2017. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Wiz, The

    CHICAGO – When stage theater can cause outbreaks of elation, celebration and joy, then it must be due to Kokandy Productions’ revival of “The Wiz.” The urban reinterpretation of “The Wizard of Oz” story – told through tuneful euphoria and jubilant dance – is ecstatically produced, in every morsel of its stagecraft.
