The Regal Mile Studio... Film Production Coming to the South Side!

The Regal Theater is getting close to showbiz again… thanks to two South Side natives who want to bring new development to the area.

This week, Derek Dudley, executive producer of Showtime hit, “The Chi” and Jim Reynolds of Loop Capital announced their plans for The Regal Mile Studio, a $60 million project that will bring 6 film sound stages and offices to the neighborhood surrounding the Regal Theater.

They applied for a zoning change to the property this week and if approved, construction could begin this fall with the complex opening in 2022. When completed, it’s expected to bring thousands of jobs to the area.
