Essanay Silent Movie Sherlock Holmes Returns To Chicago In October

The 1916 Sherlock Holmes silent movie that was filmed at Essanay Studios right here on Argyle Street and was presumed lost for decades will make its Chicago re-debut at the Chicago International Film Festival in October. It will be a homecoming of sorts, after "one of the holy grails of film" was discovered in a French movie studio vault and restored.  No date or admission prices have been set yet, but you can see a sneak peek of the film festival here.

If you can't make it to the CIFF, you can buy it on BluRay beginning October 20th.
