About this event:
Please join us at the West Town branch for a screening of the new film Chicago Drawbridges followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
Chicago Drawbridges is a documentary directed by Stephen Hatch and narrated by Patrick McBriarty, author and bridge historian, chronicling the importance of the bridges in the making of the Windy City, from the very first wood footbridge, built by a tavern owner in 1832, to today’s iconic structures spanning the Chicago River. Informative and entertaining this 56-minute film tells the story of Chicago’s development through the bridges based on the forthcoming book Chicago River Bridges from the University of Illinois Press.
