If you saw the first play of the trilogy, ”The Mark of Kane”, you're in for another treat! If you didn't see “The Mark of Kane”, this exciting next addition stands alone and will prove to be a fascinating look into the 1950s Congressional investigation into the supposed link between comic books and juvenile delinquency; along with the effect of the investigation on the careers of three persons: William Gaines, the originator of the horror genre of comic books; Matt Baker, a Black closeted gay artist of romance comics; and Janice Valleau, creator of a pioneering comics feature starring a woman detective. Directed by Mark Pracht. City Lit Theater is located at 1020 West Bryn Mawr Avenue, on the second floor of the Edgewater Presbyterian Church at the corner of Bryn Mawr and Kenmore, right around the corner from where Lake Shore Drive starts at Hollywood and Sheridan.

They've done a good job of delivering food orders across the street to us in the bar. Let’s all gather to say thank you! 


Wed Oct 25, The 74th Warren Miller “ALL TIME”  Film Premiere 7:30 pm. Kick off your ski season with the ever-popular Warren Miller movies that showcase extreme skiing and boarding at their best.


Warren Miller Entertainment is getting ready to celebrate 75 years of Warren Miller films and this anniversary is too big to fit in a single film, or even a single year, so we’re building a two-year celebration of Warren’s legacy.


Get ready to go deep into the stuff of which snowy dreams are made. Celebrate the birth of ski towns like Sun Valley and Aspen, icons and innovators like the original hotdoggers, and the most outlandish locations ever skied. Then, catch new footage featuring Maine’s finest athlete of today, Donny Pelletier, and meet the next generation at Woodward Park City. Through it all, Jonny Moseley and special guests will share their own stories to bring us to this moment. It’s all going down this fall as we kick off our two-year party for 75 seasons on snow.


PSC will have a table in the lobby for the Wednesday, 10/25/23  Tivoli showing in Downers Grove. There will be prizes and giveaways throughout the evening. Wear your PSC gear and stop by our table to show your support. Here are the two Chicagoland showings of ‘ALL TIME’.
