After cancelling shows and closing theaters due to COVID last year, Chicago has reopened this fall.
But while in town check out the Chicago International Film Festival Oct 13-24.
Begun in 1964 by filmmaker and graphic artist Michael Kutza it promotes diverse subjects and filmmakers.
If in town Oct. 13 try to snag a ticket for the 7 p.m. showing of the French Dispatch or Halloween Kills at 10 p.m., both at the Music Box Theatre.
Or at 7 p.m. go to the Chitown Movies drive-in to see The Velvet Underground. For more film-fest showings visit the presenting organization’s Cinema Chicago – Upcoming Events Calendar and look at the Filmfestt Guide for kickoff ideas.
