Hello, again, friends. We hope you are staying warm.

Due to the inclement weather we are expected to have—where temperatures may reach -50º—the Gene Siskel Film Center's offices and theaters will be closed tomorrow, January 6, for the safety of our patrons and our staff.

We will be open this evening as scheduled and we are planning on returning on Tuesday, January 7 as usual. If there are any updates, we'll keep you posted right here.

Until then, please stay safe and warm. We'll see you at the movies!

Good afternoon, friends. Our theaters are nice and warm and we have a slate of great movies today, so if you're joining us this afternoon for AT BERKELEY, LIV & INGMAR, or SPINNING PLATES, PLEASE be safe.
