- For decades, the Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago has been a mecca for cinemaphiles around the world. Today, renamed for Gene Siskel, the beloved Chicago film critic, the place is as bustling as ever. On offer are everything from first-run Hollywood hits to the most obscure foreign films, revered and forgotten classics, low-budget independents and a continuing stream of special programs and festivals. A cafe and gallery keeps crowds lingering long after the end credits roll. See website for show times, event calendar and more.
