A Yuletide Party and Potluck
Sunday, December 16 from 6:30-10:00 PM, Free
Come celebrate the Yuletide’s of Yesteryear once again with your pals at The Nightingale! We will eat, drink, and be Monstrously Merry Movie Mavens, with a very special presentation of our beloved George Kuchar’s Christmas Classics.
In the Kuchar spirit, it’s a Gluttonous Gastronomic Get-Together, we’re Cooking up a Creative Cacophony of Christmas Cuisines! Come hungry, and bring a dish or a drink to share if you like, but don’t stay home if you can’t, we love you anyway.
We’re excited to share the Kuchar Christmas Sprit with you, our cinema family. This event remembers and honors not only George, but also David Pendleton, who started the Kuchar Christmas programmatic tradition at the Harvard Film Archive.
Screening at 7:30
This event is a free for you, our cinema pals.
Screening sponsored by the Video Data Bank at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, www.vdb.org.

A Seasonal Potluck and Shooting Party
Sunday, November 23rd at 2:00 pm
It’s that time of year again! Please join us at the Nightingale for our annual holiday potluck. We will eat, drink, and shoot this year’s Nightingale trailer, which truth in advertising, is really more a moving image document of all the folks we feel grateful to know and watch movies with. This year the trailer will be led by Nightingale programmer and artist, Jillian Hansen-Lewis. As usual, there will be a large turkey, vats of mashed potatoes, vegan main dish, and homebrew cider. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. All foods types encouraged. Friends of friends and children welcome.
See last year’s movie, made by Ian Curry and Jesse Malmed, here.
