The Associate Board of Cinema/Chicago is proud to announce their 2017 screening series, in partnership with the Public Hotel Chicago, Stella Artois and Wansas Tequila. Flicks at the Public presents screenings at The Public Hotel’s plush screening room featuring some of the most beloved classic films of recent memory. Proceeds from each event go directly to Cinema/Chicago’s Education Program that brings independent film to Chicagoland students.

For the 2017 series, the Associate Board presents monthly screenings in two four-film programs: Totally ‘90s and Batter Up!, screening new classics from the ‘90s and favorite baseball films (Go Cubs!) in a deluxe lounge setting on top-notch exhibition technology. Ticket includes admission, complimentary popcorn and two drink vouchers redeemable for Stella Artois or a craft cocktail featuring Wansas Tequila. With additional cocktails and small bites available for purchase plus pre-film movie trivia, Flicks at the Public is a perfect for a date night, girls-night-out or after work entertainment. Tickets are just $20 ($18 for Cinema/Chicago Members); check out the full list of films and ticket options below!
