This is an incredible theater! Its right down town [Over by the ABC TV building on State] One of the greatest film centers in North America. You have to visit this if you are a real film fanatic and you are in Chicago. This is a theater for people who are very passionate about indi films, documentaries, ground breaking movies and tributes to the great film makers of the past.
Go here now!
This film center is truly an honor to the late Gene Siskel. It's beautiful inside and plays movies that you may not be able to find anywhere else, especially foreign, independent, art-house, and documentaries. I especially like how they have different themes each month, that focus on films from a particular director, country, region, subject matter, genre, etc. They obviously put a great amount of love and passion into the selection, rather than just slapping together a bunch of films. The atmosphere is great too; more upscale that the average theater, but not stuffy or snobby, and ticket prices are very reasonable. It's just a great place for people who love film to gather together.
