Panavision has opened a 13,000-square-foot location in Chicago to serve the growing number of productions in the Midwest. The Fox series The Exorcist and APB are among the first projects to utilize the facility.

Panavision Chicago is located within close proximity of Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, Chicago Studio City, and Essanay Studio and Lighting Co.’s stages. The new facility offers full camera and lens services, a lens projection room, a prep floor with five bays, a 900-square-foot private prep room, easy dock access and a Panastore.
