Each screening is followed by a discussion led by scholars, critics, or filmmakers. The actual film will not be disclosed until you arrive at the theater, but rest assured—the independent and foreign films are often the buzz of major film festivals.

Talk Cinema

After nearly two decades obsessing over cinema as a film critic for Variety and editor-in-chief of Film Comment, Harlan Jacobson founded Talk Cinema—a series of early film screenings hosted at multiple theaters around the country. Each year, Harlan handpicks independent and foreign films from the world's leading festivals, often resulting in some of the first public screenings of award-winning prestige pictures. After each screening, he hosts experts such as scholars, filmmakers, and critics from the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune during discussions modeled after those held at festivals and particularly cultured kids' treehouses. Talk Cinema also occasionally hosts guided tours of festivals in international cities such as Reykjavik, Havana, Palm Springs and Locarno.
