TICKETS ON SALE JULY 16 FOR MEMBERS, JULY 19 FOR GENERAL AUDIENCE

"What positions the film among Fellini's greatest are its punctuation points of mysterious beauty." - Lance Goldenberg, Village Voice

"Leaves us with the hope that the human comedy just may be able to survive everything." - Kevin Thomas, LA Times

"A totally accessible film. It deals directly, hilariously, and sometimes poignantly with the good people of this small town." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

A carnivalesque portrait of provincial Italy during the Fascist period, Federico Fellini's most personal film satirizes his youth and turns daily life into a circus of social rituals, adolescent desires, male fantasies, and political subterfuge, all set to Nina Rota’s gorgeous, nostalgia-tinged score. (Janus Films)

For the safety and comfort of our audience members and employees, we will have the following safety protocols in place for at least the first two weeks after we reopen:

  • Masks required by all staff and patrons at all times

  • Staggered showtimes and ample time between shows to mitigate crowds

  • Ticket pre-orders for films encouraged to reduce lines 

  • Hand sanitizer and disposable face masks available for patrons

  • Only 80% of our tickets will be available for sale so that we can leave an empty seat between parties

  • In light of the latest health updates from the city of Chicago, and in accordance with the School of the Art Institute, we will not be selling concessions nor allowing outside food or drink for at least the first two weeks of business. 

  • We will, however, hand out a FREE small popcorn to those who show proof of COVID vaccination, as a “parting gift” when you exit the theater. 

  • If you are feeling unwell or have a fever, please stay home and stream films until you feel better

Note: protocols are subject to change, per new or evolving information.
