Tuesday Night is Movie Night!

Bored and looking for something to do tonight? Good, because there're two great film events happening tonight.

If you're strong of heart and body, you can endure the hot summer evenings tonight and see High Noon" at Grant Park (8:41 PM - don't be late) as part of the annual Chicago Outdoor Film Festival. This 1952 western features Gary Cooper, Lloyd Bridges, and the (then to be future) Princess of Monaco.

If you're pitiful weaklings like us who seek the safe comfortable confines of the almighty A/C, The Midwest Independent Film Festival is resuming the monthly shows with a pair of documentaries. The MWFF will be hosting the Chicago premieres of two Sundance films: "Range" and "No Umbrella: Election Day in the City". "Range" is a film about family relationships and farming, while "No Umbrella" is a documentary looking at Election Day 2004 in Ohio (including all the polling breakdowns, poor election management, and pissed-off voters). This pair of films will be shown starting at 7:30 PM at the Landmark Century theatre at 2828 North Clark.
