    35mm screenings at the Portage Theater

    Image

    CHICAGO, IL — “You’ll put your eye out!”

    This familiar warning gets a fresh demonstration this summer in THE VIKINGS, the awesome widescreen adventure featuring a one-eyed Kirk Douglas. It’s one of several lessons to be gleaned from the Northwest Chicago Film Society’s latest calendar. Film Society habitués will also learn what it takes to survive as a gay black hustler in pre-Stonewall New York, what constitutes proper etiquette at a Beacon Hill dinner party, and how to make the crippled walk again! Who says learning can’t be fun?

    The Northwest Chicago Film Society is proud to announce its eighth, extra-educational season, which will run from May 1 to August 28 at the historic, newly renovated Portage Theater. Building upon its specialty of screening strange films in beautiful 35mm prints (and, occasionally, beautiful films in strange prints), the Northwest Chicago Film Society’s summer season will span more than six decades of cinema history—from 1929’s sci-fi pacifist paean HIGH TREASON to Jim Jarmusch’s laconic post-acid, post-Western DEAD MAN (1995). You’ll get something different every week—and, with our newly expanded calendar, you can even get something different twice a week!
