The three best things to do today in Chicago

Written by
Sara Freund

1. Step back in time

See photos taken during the 1936 Olympic Games, which were held in Berlin during Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime. The "Nazi Olympics" exhibit contains photographs, films and athlete testimonies that look back on the impact of this moment in history and consider the role of ethics in sports today. (Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, 9603 Woods Dr, 10am, $6-$12)

2. Catch a late night flick

Head to the Logan Theatre and catch a screening in this month's late night series, which features the films of iconic directors. Tonight, movie-goers can see Double Indemnity, a 1944 classic directed by Billy Wilder that tells a tale of money, fraud and murder. (Logan Theatre, 2646 N Milwaukee Ave, 10pm, $8.50)

3. Experience a distant culture

The Museum of Contemporary Photography debuts a new collection of photos from urban and rural Iran. Through a mix of documentary photography, portraiture and fine art photography "Burnt Generation" conveys the many ways in which the Iranian people have been affected by social and political unrest. (Museum of Contemporary Photography, 600 S Michigan Ave, 10am-8pm, Free)
