    Chicago Filmmakers proudly distributes over 600 films on 16mm and 35mm. These aren't those films. These are the leftover film reels from long-shuttered local co-ops and long-forgotten classes. And plenty of random stuff that even we can't figure out. A lovely, goofy evening will be had by all. (90 min. approx., 16mm)
