Was ihr unternehmen werdet

At Zap Props, wind your way through thousands of vintage props that have appeared in almost every major movie and TV series filmed in Chicago. First, we’ll grab a seat in the barbershop section and explore at least a dozen categories of props. I’ll also host a Q&A session with the shop's owners. Then, we will tour Zap Props' 36,000-square-foot warehouse. Throughout the tour, I’ll identify significant props, movies and TV shows in which they appeared, and what they represented. Finally, at the end of the tour, you’ll have time to snap pictures in a set piece Zap Props created just for us and purchase a vintage prop or two.

Hi. I’m Kelli, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

After a 12-year career as a film professor, I began creating unique and informative movie-themed events in and around Chicago. I hold a Ph.D. in Humanities, an M.A. in English, and a B.A. in English. For fun, I run and walk local races, renovate my 90-year-old Chicago bungalow, and curate a Gene Kelly fan website.

In fact, Zap has served almost every major production filmed in Chicago (and some that were not), including A League of their Own, High Fidelity, Road to Perdition, Empire, and Chicago Fire.

This was my very first Atlas Obscura event and it could not have gone any better! Kelli was an excellent host/guide and knew a lot about props and movies, being a film professor prior to joining Atlas Obscura. We also had a little Q&A with Simone, the daughter of the owner of Zap Props and she was able to share with us the history of the place as well as some interesting factoids on some of the props in-house. Definitely a great off-the-beaten path attraction that adds more to the beauty of Chicago and lives up to what Atlas Obscura is all about.

Kelli's tour of Zap's Props was such a treat! I was in town from Philly and a friend recommended the experience - this is definitely something I wouldn't have found on my own! Kelli provided some educational background before leading our group around the prop shop. It's a totally unique collection and it was a blast having Kelli's expertise as she pointed out props that have been featured in major films. Would absolutely recommend, especially to any film geeks out there!

This was such a unique experience, and without Atlas Obscura, I never would have known this location existed! Just as good or better than the prop house we toured in LA, and we learned new things about movie sets and terminology. Lots of great stories from both Kelli and the daughter of the business owner. The group size and the length of the tour were both great too. I've had several friends who are interested in doing the next tour just from seeing my pictures.

Really cool place! Kelli gave a presentation before the tour. She is experienced in film and gave some great insight on how props are used in filmmaking. One of the owners daughters dropped in and told us more about how the prop house operates their business. Then we got to tour the place. It was unlike anyplace I’ve ever been. Worth the price for sure.

Had a fun experience on our tour. It was fascinating to see a part of the theater/film business that the audience doesn’t necessarily think about. Really enjoyed learning about what goes into creating settings and characters.
