Though college film societies arent as prevalent or important as they were in the glory days of the 60s Chicagoist likes to wax nostalgic about decades in which we werent alive Northwesterns Block Cinema and University of Chicagos Doc Films continue in their renegade cinematic traditions. This week, Block Cinema wraps up their Howard Hawks retrospective, and the seasons schedule, with Rio Bravo tonight and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes tomorrow (both at 8), two wildly different films that show this auteurs ability to master any genre. With $6 admission prices, 35-mm prints, and free parking, its one event thats actually worth a trek up to Evanston. Grab some pan-Asian delights at Lulus and make a night of it.
