Iconic Teen Movie has Highland Park Roots

Highland Park remembers the Tom Cruise classic "Risky Business," which was filmed nearly 30 years ago in and around the community.

A host of movies have been filmed in Highland Park, most notably John Hughes' "Home Alone," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Sixteen Candles," but the Tom Cruise classic "Risky Business" is perhaps the most memorable for the community.

The iconic teen film, written and directed by Highland Park High School alumni Paul Brickman, celebrates its 30th anniversary in August.

In a nostalgic story published in the Chicago Tribune, Highland Park residents remember what it was like to see their favorite locations like the now-closed Shelton's Ravinia Grill and Highland Park Theatre on the big screen.
