Gene Siskel Film Center
164 North State Street
The Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago was founded in 1972 as a presenter of art films. This state-of-the-art facility opened on June 1, 2001 and is named in honor of a film critic who had a very popular public television show with Roger Ebert in the 1970s and 1980s.
The City is doomed...we shall solve the city problem by leaving the city. (Henry Ford, 1928)
