Three The Hard Way

Block Cinema

Block Cinema screens classic and contemporary films and is dedicated to providing the Northwestern campus, the North Shore and Chicago with a quality venue for cinema. Block Cinema is sponsored in part by a generous gift from James B. Pick and Rosalyn M. Laudati.

Block Cinema will be returning to the screen in late September 2016 with programs including an extensive series of Iranian films related to the Salaam Cinema! 50 Years of Iranian Movie Posters exhibition, two screenings with Northwestern alumni Fred Williamson in person, the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation, and a recently-restored short film featuring Hairy Who artist Karl Wirsum (with Wirsum and other special guests in person).

Check back for more details in early September.
