Chicago is now known for more than its tasty hot dogs, stunning architectural design and thriving culture. The city has become home to a flourishing film scene with popular films and TV shows such as “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, “The Dark Knight”, NBC’s “Chicago Fire”, CBS’s “Shameless” and many more. As Chicago continues to be cast in a starring role, we want to support and preserve the films that cultivate its entertainment industry. Organizations including The Chicago International REEL Shorts Film Festival, Chicago Cinema Society and local venue The Patio Theater have joined forces for one unifying cause: to help exhibit and promote cinema and make the arts accessible to everyone.
Award season may have just come to a close, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to celebrate creative minds in film. Mark your calendars for this Saturday, March 9 from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. for the Triple Threat Film Festival at the Patio Theater (6008 W. Irving Rd., Chicago), celebrating the work of Director Albert Pyun. Enjoy three cult classics including Cybor: Director’s Cut, Nemesis Director’s Cut and the Chicago debut of Road to Hell. What’s even better than a night packed with back-to-back film watching? Getting to meet the director in person! Director Albert Pyun will be in attendance to sign autographs and talk his fans.
This must-do event will offer the unique opportunity for a Q&A with Cyborg Editor Rozanne Zingale, Actress Dru Anne Perry and Writer and Producer Cynthia Curnan. Movie posters, DVDs, Blu Rays and Soundtracks will be available for purchase on-site. So grab your popcorn and head to the movies!
