We know Chicago as the only city where something called “The Bean” is a tourism cash cow, putting ketchup on your hot dog is a capital crime, and ordering thin-crust pizza is referred to as “dieting.” On top of those well-tread tropes, there's yet another layer of odd city quirks that don't exist in other parts of the universe. These things can only happen in Chicago.
A billboard remains up for Aloha... which hasn’t been in theaters for more than six months
Chicagoans are both proud of their neighborhoods and interested in local oddities, and these two interests currently converge in Logan Square where a poster for the movie Aloha still sits above a number of other blank billboards (a hot button issue with the local Landmarks Commission)... even though the movie hasn’t been in theaters since last summer. No one knows why it remains. Maybe Columbia Pictures is hoping it will spur on-demand purchases of the box-office flop? Either way, the poster’s got its own Tumblr. No word yet on when it’s getting an agent.
