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 has been closed since Monday, March 16. This is a dynamic and unprecedented situation, we will share the most up-to-date information on this page.
(Update 6/6/2020) When we halted our programming in March, we announced that memberships would be suspended for the duration of the closure. As this crisis has continued far past our initial estimates, revenues have dwindled and our financial situation has intensified. For those memberships that were active when we closed on March 16, we will only be able to provide a three-month extension. If you have renewed or purchased a membership since then, we will not renew/activate your membership until we reopen. This will allow us to emerge from this crisis with the resources to continue to provide high quality, affordable entertainment that will bring us all safely together.
We ask for your understanding and support during this intermission and want to thank you for your loyalty. We are planning some members-only events, which we’re excited to share with you soon.
The Gene Siskel Film Center’s staff will continue to be available during normal office hours (Monday - Friday from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm) and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
