Note updated showtime.

Free of stereotypes and sexism, this refreshingly mature romance by Columbia College Chicago graduate Theodore Witcher uses Hyde Park and Wicker Park locations (plus a gorgeously misty Buckingham Fountain) to tell the story of a writer (Tate) and a photographer (Long) who meet over a cup of verse at a beat poetry bar and then find that going to bed is easier than sustaining a relationship. We are pleased to present a twentieth anniversary screening of the film with Witcher in person. Archival 35mm print courtesy of Academy Film Archive. (MR)

Writer-director Theodore Witcher is scheduled to appear for audience discussion.

Following the show, ticket-holders are invited to a reception sponsored by tesori trattoria & grill, MillerCoors, and Love Cork Screw. Music will be provided by DJ I.N.C. DJ I.N.C is one of the most respected and sought after Disc Jockeys in Chicago. His talents and understanding of music and sound have helped produce over six solo CDs. These soulful and mesmerizing beats and vocals has been labeled "Soulful Cool." And his latest release, Tha Afterset: Jazzy Soulful Intelligent Movement, is just as coooool.
