    Upgrade is so derivative, it's original
    Leigh Whannell's low-budget horror feature Upgrade, now playing in general release, reminds me of the goofy genre mash-ups made by Brian De Palma in the 1960s and '70s (Hi, Mom! , Phantom of the Paradise ) and Takashi Miike in the 1990s and the aughts (Fudoh: The New Generation , The Happiness of the Katakuris ).

Your questions about Chicago Pride Fest and the Chicago Pride Parade, answered

...and more. Also on June 23, Navy Pier will host its annual Navy Pier Pride (600 E. Grand Ave.), a day of free, family-friendly Pride activities along the lakefront. Details: navypier.org

This article has 14 other Chicago locations (Show)

One more key item to mind: Beware of limited street-crossings. Halsted and Broadway are closed near the beginning of and during the parade, so don’t get caught on the wrong side of the road.

Montrose Avenue at Broadway

Irving Park Road at Broadway

Grace Street at Halsted Street

Addison Street at Halsted Street

Roscoe Street at Halsted Street

Wellington Avenue at Broadway

Cornelia Avenue at Halsted Street

Oakdale Avenue at Broadway

During parade weekend, the main Pride event (besides the parade) will be the women-centered Pride celebration Back Lot Bash, which runs from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and offers a post-parade party from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. Both will be in the parking lot behind Cheetah Gym (5248 N. Clark St.).

On parade day, between road closures and traffic, your best bet is to hoof it a little. Try Clark and Belmont or Clark and Addison, or, if you’re coming from the lake, Broadway and Belmont.
