2019 Summer Screenings Program
With its long, languid days and sweltering, starry nights, summertime inspires a sense of freedom and adventure. From the blossom of young romance and swimsuit sunbathing to the promise of mermaids and the search for alien life, this collection of films represents these feelings that summer evokes. Cinema/Chicago, together with the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and our consular and cultural partners, presented SUMMER SCREENINGS, a free weekly film series that embraces the senses of summer and adventure from around the world.
All screenings took place on Wednesdays at 6:30pm from May 29 – October 2, 2019 and were free and open to the public.
