A fundraiser to embark on our
SECOND DECADE !
Kickstarter ends on Satuday, April 28, 2018 at 9 AM
Over the last 10 years, we have hosted over 500 screenings, shown the work of over 1400 artists to thousands of patrons and we did it all with a volunteer staff and a gift economy. Now, our video projector is fading and we need your help to keep going. It’s a race against the clock for $10,000 with a side of goofy Joan Jonas homage. Check out our pitch and celebrate the Nightingale’s 10th anniversary with a donation.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING CHICAGO CINEMA!
Put extra dollars here if you got em.
