Celluloid Skylines: An At-Home Architectural Film Festival

May 22 @ 8:00 pm - May 25 @ 8:00 pm

| $7 – $21

Offered in partnership with the Music Box Theatre, this four-day, at-home film festival explores how filmmakers use architecture to tell extraordinary stories. Stream the movies at home, then join Chicago Architecture Center staff and guest experts for discussion.

Each discussion features a brief design analysis and a facilitated question-and-answer period. Pre-screening emails include suggestions for ways to “festival-ize” your experience, including links to view Music Box Theatre organist Dennis Scott performing a musical overture, themed cocktail recipes for each film, and a set of prompts to encourage design-themed household discussions.

Participants may choose to stream the films according to our recommended start times—such that each film ends just as the discussion begins—or at their own convenience.

$9 per post-screening discussion, CAC and Music Box Theatre members* $7
Four-film festival passes $27, CAC and Music Box Theatre members* $21
