Bergman retrospective at Chopin Theatre - Cinema

August 10, 2007

Bergman retrospective at Chopin Theatre - Cinema

Chopin Theatre is known mostly as an avante garde and international theater. However not many people know that it has also shown close to one thousand different films. And that will increase because of 7 ½ Cinema, the Chopin Theatre-based initiative to regularly present film events organized by different film groups.

7 ½ Cinema's prevailing formula will be of Wednesday screenings at 730p with shorts followed by feature film with tickets at $7.50. On occasion there will some festival-like undertakings with different configurations. Obviously the name 7 ½ refers to Fellini's famous film 8 ½ and Lynee's 9 ½ Weeks.

7 ½ Cinema introduces itself to Westtown with The Bergman Retrospective thanks to Chicago Cinema Forum "a cinesalon hosting laid-back but serious screenings and discussions of seldom seen works" (Chicago Reader). Forum will be also artistic advisor for 7 ½ as well as its primary event producer.
