Chicago Public Library and Actors’ Equity Unveil Chicago Film Archive of Performance
From the Chicago Tribune:
A new archive of Chicago theater performances is being created through Actors’ Equity and the Chicago Public Library that will allow anyone with a valid photo ID to watch recorded shows like the recent hits “Sender” and “Byhalia, Mississippi.” It was announced Tuesday that The Chicago Film Archive of Performance, a program that mirrors the New York Public Library’s Theatre on Film and Tape Archive which has documented productions since 1970, will receive a permanent home in the Harold Washington Library’s Special Collections and Preservation Division.
