Cinematic Chicago: "In the Good Old Summertime"

Wednesday, July 6, 2016 - 12:30pm to 3:00pm

In the Good Old Summertime (1949) is a charming MGM musical starring Judy Garland and Van Johnson. These stars play bickering co-workers in a music shop in 1912 Chicago who become increasingly attracted to each other as anonymous pen pals. (102 minutes)

This film screening is part of the Cinematic Chicago series. Out of more than 700 movies that have been made in Chicago, film historian Doug Deuchler screens six select films that feature landmarks and neighborhoods, capturing aspects of the gritty Windy City in iconic, evocative, and often magical ways.

Film Screening: "My Fair Lady"

Film Screening: "My Fair Lady"

Wednesday, June 8, 2016 - 12:00pm to 3:00pm

Join film historian Doug Deuchler for a screening and discussion of My Fair Lady, a 1964 American musical film that traces its roots to the 1913 stage play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw. The film won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director.

The film depicts Eliza Doolittle, a poor Cockney flower seller who overhears an arrogant phonetics professor, Henry Higgins, as he casually wagers that he could teach her to speak "proper" English, thereby making her presentable in the high society of Edwardian London.

Thursday, June 9, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Join Oak Park resident Ed White for an armchair tour of 13 U.S. presidential libraries in nine states. In this personal odyssey, White reflects on what you can see in these libraries and what is missing, what is real and what is spin, and what citizens get for their money. See architecture, souvenirs, treasures, and documents of our American presidents. This presidential election year is a great time to learn about some of our previous presidents and speculate on what makes a good candidate for president.
