fbpx Movie Club | Gene Siskel Film Center

Everyone's in the club! Just by attending the monthly Movie Club film and participating in the conversation, you are in! Each month we invite all audience members to join informal conversations led — but not monopolized — by carefully selected facilitators.

Gene Siskel Film Center Closed Wed. 1/30
F** YOUR HAIR & '63 BOYCOTT rescheduled to Sat. 2/2

Due to the extreme weather expected on Wednesday, January 30, the Gene Siskel Film Center offices and theaters will be closed.
However, on Saturday at noon we will be screening F*** YOUR HAIR and '63 Boycott with both director Jason Polevoi of F*** YOUR HAIR and director Gordon Quinn of '63 Boycott present for a Q&A after the screening.

If you have already purchased tickets for Wednesday night you have three choices:
• Use them for a Saturday screening;
• Exchange them for tickets to any future film at the Gene Siskel Film Center;
• Receive a refund.

Stay warm and safe!

We look forward to seeing you at the movies…
