Chicago Film Society Screenings
at Northeastern Illinois University
Presented by the Chicago Film Society
Sponsored by the Department of Communication, Media and Theatre
This spring marks the 19th season of NEIU’s collaboration with the Chicago Film Society. This season, we are offering four classic films that you won’t want to miss. Start the season with F.W. Murnau’s heartbreaking Hollywood masterpiece “Sunrise: A. Song of Two Humans” from 1927. Then take a chaotic trip into the French New Wave with Jean-Luc Godard’s “Weekend” (1967). Return to Hollywood with Boris Karloff and Béla Lugosi in the Universal Pictures pre-code horror film, “The Black Cat” (1934) directed by B-movie legend Edgar G. Ulmer. Finally, end the season with Lizzie Borden’s groundbreaking independent feminist drama “Working Girls” (1986).
All screenings take place at 7:30 p.m. in the NEIU Auditorium
