So this was posted on Instagram early this year ...
Don't know about the reference to "getting the band back together," but apparently Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi were planning to visit filming locations from the movie this summer, no doubt with a camera crew. (Where the hell did I read this?? I don't think it was on this site, and I can't find it in my internet history.) If they do this at some later date, there will, of course, be one less stop they can make (Ray's Music Exchange).
"Sir, how much would something like that full-size Ford police package in the middle there run me?"

- There was also going to be a series of Library Talks about the 40th anniversary of the movie and specifically sections about the backstories in the movie, the impact on Chicago film making, and also the mixture of Hollywood genres. There were a bunch of these scheduled for 2020 and I'm not 100% sure but I don't think one of them actually was able to go ahead.
So now they do it virtual style on Zoom. As far as I know the next presentation is January 14th in conjunction with the White Oak Library District and presented by movie historian Kelli Marshall of Chicago Movie Tours. Bailey Quarters explains ... heh no, this is Kelli .

^ A reminder from Patch that this web event is in 2 days.
Celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Blues Brothers (1980) as we explore the movie's backstories, mix of Hollywood genres, and impact on Chicago-based film making. This program will be presented LIVE on Zoom by movie historian Kelli Marshall.
I've never used Zoom, it appears it's free to join and watch the presentation. It's also possible/likely? that the entire presentation will be uploaded to daTube at some point in time. To join in on the 14th you need to register ...
After registering, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing information about joining the webinar.
This is one of the promo pieces they were going to use for the series of library talks. It seems like Kelli was going to do a whole bunch of presentations at different libraries in Chicago and the area, unfortunately all cancelled.
