Hot Doug’s: The Movie

  •   Christopher Markos
  •   United States

Part of Cinema/Chicago’s International Screenings Program


In Fall 2014, Hot Doug’s, Chicago’s most famous “Sausage & Encased Meat Emporium,” closed its doors for good. This affectionate tribute captures the establishment’s final days and the near-religious fanaticism that drew devotees to mark their skin with “Doug’s” tattoos and stand in line for hours at a time. Was it the innovative menu (foie gras and duck sausage, anyone?), the anticipation, or the always amiable proprietor Doug Sohn and his hardworking staff? Hot Doug’s: The Movie revels in food as a cultural phenomenon.
