The independent film “Canal Street” may not be opening in theaters until next year, but there’s something about it that makes it immediately relevant. This summer, the film’s crew were shooting scenes at Proviso West and Proviso Math and Science Academy, according to District 209 officials.

Apparently, one of the crew members is a Proviso West graduate, officials said. “Canal Street” features “Empire” star Bryshere Y. Gray as Kholi Styles, a young man who moves from the South Side of Chicago to Winnetka after a classmate dies mysteriously and Styles becomes a suspect.
