"There are no easy answers, and those making THE EVENING HOUR do not presume to have them. That’s an honesty that's hard to come by." - Dan Mecca, The Film Stage

“A quietly powerful portrait of a young man forced to make impossible decisions." - Joe Blessing, The Playlist

“A vivid sense of the support system which powers and protects these lives lived on the periphery” - Wendy Ide, Screen International

Cole Freeman (Philip Ettinger, FIRST REFORMED) maintains an uneasy equilibrium in his declining Appalachian mining town, looking after the old and infirm in the community while selling their excess painkillers to local addicts to help make ends meet. But when his old friend, Terry Rose (Cosmo Jarvis, LADY MACBETH), returns with dangerous plans that threaten the fragile balance Cole has crafted, his world and identity are thrown into disarray. (Strand Releasing)

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 50% of our tickets will be available for sale so that we can ensure a safe movie-going experience

  • 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. 

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