    • I understand they will be in Chicago till the end of August. I saw some scenes, bring binoculars if you have them some you can’t get close to.

  1. If you go just south of Jackson and Clinton, past the beggar’s pizza, they have all the vehicles on dipslay including Optimus.

  2. Does anyone know where they will be next? My son is a huge transformers fan and we are trying to get there for him! We were there Monday night but they were filming inside the building! He would love to see the destroyed streets or the cars would be great!! Any information would be wonderful! Thanks!

  3. does anyone know if they are still in chicago filming? as of tuesday the 10th? i will be in chicago the 11th but i have no idea where they are now.
