Free Films – Cinema/Chicago’s Summer Screenings

2020 Summer Screenings Program

Due to the uncertainty surrounding public gatherings in the months to come, together with the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural and Special Events and our consular and cultural partners, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Summer Screenings program.

We look forward to Summer Screenings returning in 2021, with a full program of free film screenings celebrating cinema from around the globe.
