The Bros-Mobile hits Chicago this weekend during its nationwide tour leading up to the film’s world premiere in Toronto.

What is the Bros-mobile? It is a 44-seat mobile movie theater that is currently touring the United States. Exclusive footage from Bros will be presented on an 18-foot screen during the tour, which started on August 11 and runs through September 9 when the film premieres during the Toronto International Film Festival. The Chicago stop is August 26-27 in different locations on each other. Other stops on the tour include Atlanta, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Provincetown, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, Las Vegas, San Diego and Los Angeles.

Here are the details for the Chicago stop:

Friday, August 26 (6 PM – 12 Midnight) – Halsted Street (one block from Sidetrack)
3311 N Halsted Ave, Chicago

Saturday, August 27 (11 AM – 5 PM) – North Avenue Beach
1600 N Lake Shore Drive, Chicago

If you miss out on Friday evening, you have a second chance. But if you forgot to visit on either day, well, that’s on you.

This fall, Universal Pictures proudly presents the first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love. Maybe. They’re both very busy.

From the ferocious comic mind of Billy Eichner and the hitmaking brilliance of filmmakers Nicholas Stoller and Judd Apatow, comes Bros, a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about how hard it is to find another tolerable human being to go through life with.

Starring Billy Eichner, the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film—and featuring an entirely LGBTQ+ principal cast, including Luke Macfarlane, Ts Madison, Monica Raymund, Guillermo Díaz, Guy Branum, and Amanda Bearse—Bros is directed by Nicholas Stoller from his screenplay with Eichner. The film is produced by Judd Apatow, Stoller and Josh Church and is executive produced by Eichner and Karl Frankenfiel.

Universal will release Bros in theaters on September 30, 2022.
