Gene Siskel Film Center to Host “Neigborhood Night” Feb. 17th

images 2On Monday, February 17, the Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St., the only movie theater in the Chicago’s Loop Theatre District, will host its second Neighborhood Night, an evening of community and quality cinema.

Last July’s event was such a success that the Film Center is eager to host a second one. The Film Center welcomes local workers, visitors, and most notably area residents to experience the unique cinema. Attendees will enjoy member ticket prices for the night, paying only $6 per screening, while Film Center members pay $5. A reception courtesy of Whole Foods Market will run from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. A wide array of films are scheduled for the evening:

BAY OF ANGELS (6:00 p.m.), by director Jacques Demy, an elegant French tale of love and destruction; 7 BOXES (6:00 p.m.), a humorous Paraguayan thriller; Juliette Binoche in Auguste Rodin biopic, CAMILLE CLAUDEL 1915 (7:45 p.m.), directed by noted filmmaker Bruno Dumont; and IN NO GREAT HURRY (8:00 p.m.), a documentary by Thomas Leach that focuses on the late pioneer of color photography, Saul Leiter.
