CHICAGO, May 10 (Xinhua) — What do “Batman: The Dark Night,” and the upcoming movies “Transformers 3” and “Superman: Man of Steel” have in common? They all have Chicago as a filming location.

On Tuesday, Chicago was touted anew as “a world class film destination” with the opening of a state-of-the-art film and television studio, said to be the largest facility in the United States outside Hollywood.

Joined by Emmy Award-winning actor Kelsey Grammer and the producers of the new Chicago-inspired TV series “Boss,” Illinois Governor Pat Quinn announced that the state is investing five million U.S. dollars into the new privately-owned Cinespace Chicago Film Studios.

  1. A very good post. I find with building a chicken coop, the first thing you must do as you build a chicken house is take the time to plan the entire coop before you build. Many people make the mistake of building too early and then find out they have built too small because of all the additional pieces that have to go inside.
