Movies Made at Slaymaker Gallery
Where Art and Film Collide
Slaymaker Fine Art was left starstruck after two major Hollywood productions took over its Chicago-based building in the past year. Universal Pictures’
"Wanted," starring Angelina Joie, James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman, and “Public Enemies,” starring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, used both the interior and
exterior of the Slaymaker Gallery as set locations to shoot scenes for these blockbuster films.
In August 2007, studio executives approached owner Woody Slaymaker and asked to use the roof of his classic turn-of-the-century building to take some key shots for the production of "Wanted," released in June 2008. A few months later, famed film director, Michael Mann came to scout the interior of Slaymaker’s gallery for "Public Enemies," to be released in July 2009.
The 14,000-square-foot building was originally built for the Burnishine Metal and Polish Company, founded in 1896. After that, it served as an antique shop for more than 60 years. The building has four floors that are divided into sections, making it perfect for Hollywood stagehands to transform each individual section to suit their needs.
