"The only place in town carrying the torch for midnight mindfuck cinema...
Facets Night School features local cinema nerds introducing their favorite obscurities."
Best of 2013, Chicago Reader
An off-shoot of Facets' long-running, popular film school program, Facets Night School digs into cinema's wild side with special Saturday night midnight lectures on cult favorites followed by screenings of the films and post-screening discussions. Horror greats, sci-fi wonders, action and kung-fu whirlwinds, exploitation favorites, classic and contemporary oddities, black comedies, rock 'n' roll docs, crazy animation and much more all go under the microscope at the hands of Facets' movie obsessives. It's a schooling in Midnight Movies that you won't find anywhere else!
Each class includes a lecture, a screening, post-screening discussion, grindhouse/cult trailers, giveaways, and more! Each student receives an educational pack for the films full of notes, essays, articles, a bibliography for further reading and more with admission.
Don't forget, lectures begin at midnight with a $5 fee.
Facets Night School is FREE for Patron Circle Members
All classes are held at Facets Cinémathèque, 1517 W. Fullerton Ave., Chicago IL
