    A place to buy film in Chicago IL

    Just came back from the lomography store in Chicago.
    Amazingly, they carry TONS of film, from BW to Chromes, and we spotted some Fuji T64 rolls beating around as well as fuji pack film, and all kinds of other stuff.

    They are open long hours and this store is a real brick and mortar, locally owned business that sells nothing but film and film cameras.

    More then worth the effort to go there and buy some film if you are local, and give them your business, especially in light of calumet being closed etc....
    The 3 times i was there parking was a breeze right in front of the door.

    Support them, support film. Buy local, support your community!

    until that store (which will most likely not sell film) is open, and has a real address there is no reason not buy at the lomo store...

    Central Camera, 230 S. Wabash, has everything.

    No, seriously. Everything. Old line, long-time old fashioned camera store.

    Of course central camera is an excellent store for the film minded person.
    The lomo store is for anyone not in downtown, or who wants somewhere easier to get to, with a super cool vibe and lots of friendly help and resources (and of course film).

    Small correction: It's Wicker Park.

    Know the area well. I used to go to concerts at the Double Door as well as pick up cheap CD's at Reckless Records.

    The two stores mentioned are less than three miles apart. Take the Blue Line El from one to the other.
