    Hmm try googling or yahooing it. For example like: "Films set in Chicago" and you might get some results.

    If I remember right, I believe Road to Perdition had a scene there. Why don't you go to www.imdb.com (internet movie database) and type in some films you know took place in Chicago, then click on the trivia and it might say where it exactly is.

    Good luck!
