Film Center from Your Sofa

With our doors closed, you may be missing the Gene Siskel Film Center -- but we don't want you to miss out on the latest art house films! We're partnering with our favorite distributors to present new and noteworthy independent and international cinema on a screen (very!) near you.

Keep checking in for our updated streaming schedule, noting that new films will continue to be added as they're confirmed. Please also note that each film has its own streaming procedures, pricing, and availability--but none cost more than the price of a movie ticket!

A portion of all proceeds--from streaming films through the Film Center or contributing to our ongoing fundraising initiatives--will help keep the Film Center operating during this time and help ensure we will all watch movies together again at our theaters.

To stay connected in the meantime, we invite you to share your thoughts in the Facebook events we’ve created for each film we’re streaming and to tune in to our “Screen to Screen” discussions, where you can enjoy interactive, virtual Q&As with filmmakers, cast, crew, and other special guests all from the comfort of your sofa (and sweatpants).

Thank you for your generous support during this time. Stay well, stay at home--and we hope to "see you" at the movies!

Please reference our Streaming FAQ page for further direction!

The Gene Siskel Film Center has worked with numerous distributors to provide films for you to stream during our suspended programming. Please note the following:

• These are films we have screened in the past, would have been screening now, or somehow reflect our critically acclaimed programming.
• Due to the many different sources, there is a range of prices and available dates for each film. However, none of the prices are more than what you would pay for a single, non-member movie ticket.
• Because we are connecting you to a variety of platforms, we regret we cannot offer member or any discounts for streaming.
• Please note that you will be required to set up individual accounts through streaming services and distributors in order to stream Film Center From Your Sofa, your Film Center account will not apply.

Thank you so much for your understanding and support! Enjoy!

The health and safety of our guests and staff is our highest priority, and to support efforts to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Gene Siskel Film Center will be closed beginning Monday, March 16.
