  • Facets Cinematheque
    A nonprofit theater helmed by passionate cinephiles, Facets Cinematheque instills a love of film in its youngest moviegoers through its groundbreaking children's programs. Since establishing their first children's film exhibition series in 1975, the theater's stewards have branched out into education and outreach, introducing students to positive films and the inspiring stories behind them through channels including family film events, in-school screenings, and the Facets Kids Film Camp. They also oversee the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, which presents hundreds of films from around the globe during its annual autumn run. Though the festival caters to its smallest attendees, its scope is impressively large; welcoming over 20,000 attendees each year, the festival often offers the first screenings of award-winning fare, such as recent Academy Award winner The Fantastic Flying Books Of Mr. Morris Lessmore. In addition to their children's programming, the theater also lights up its silver screen with indie films, award winners, foreign flicks, and documentaries. Celluloid-caretakers curate a collection of reels that seldom see screenings elsewhere in Chicago, frequently enjoying their city debut within the intimate 125-seat theater. Occasionally, production-team members or film experts join audiences immediately following the show for Q&A sessions—known as film dialogues—taking questions, exploring themes, and providing tips for removing stubborn popcorn kernels from teeth. Upcoming films can be found on Facets’ website. Eyeballs absorb moving pictures thanks to the dual capabilities of Facets’ projection system, which handles digital and 35 mm films with equal aplomb. While the ephemeral stories fill brains with new ideas, soda and popcorn—acquirable at the old-fashioned concession stand—fill mouths with flavors that have defined every classic moviegoing experience since Orson Welles first invented the snack.

In addition to a stint as the Health and Fitness columnist for the Chicago Daily Herald, during which he penned some 170 articles on exercise, nutrition, and general health, he’s also a licensed kinesiotherapist, certified massage therapist, and a USA Triathlon Level I coach. Pelelas backs up his professional titles with a long resumé of personal triumphs, having participated in nine Ironman races and more than 20 marathons and ultramarathons.

  • Gene Siskel Film Center
    The Gene Siskel Film Center is as famous to Chicago film-lovers as its namesake TV film critic has been to national audiences. As the Loop's only movie house, it draws crowds with an eclectic mix of programming rather than with blockbusters and violent popcorn battles. The Film Center has been around under the umbrella of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago since 1972, and its curators are devoted to the art of cinema at least as much as the business. A typical weekend night might offer a documentary, a concert film, a foreign classic, and an innovative modern drama—maybe even a world premiere or a guest artist appearance. The theaters themselves make it easy to be sucked into the screen, with ultra-plush stadium-style seats, a cafe that serves wine and espresso in addition to traditional concessions, and capacity for 16mm, 35mm, and digital projections. According to Chicagoist, it's not simply a pleasant moviegoing experience—"point-for-point, the Siskel is the finest place to catch a movie in Chicago."
