Johnny Depp and "Public Enemies" motivate John Dillinger Day in Chicago

Apparently thanks to Johnny Depp and the Public Enemies filming in the area, the focus at the Portage Theater in Chicago this coming Sunday, July 20 will be on John Dillinger as they name it John Dillinger Day. They plan a special showing of the last movie Dillinger saw before he was gunned down outside of the Biograph Theater in Chicago where they will be showing Manhattan Melodrama starring Clark Gable, Myrna Loy and William Powell with ticket prices set at 25 cents, the same price Dillinger paid that fateful night, June 23, 1934.
