Oculus
Horror

Bridgeport

As if living with the ghosts of mayors past weren’t terrifying enough.

 

Divergent
Action

Streeterville

Why rent a dystopian thriller when you can go to Navy Pier?

 

42
Sports

Hyde Park

No, U. of C., 42 is not a movie about the angle at which rainbows appear.

 

Art-house/indie

Lake View

The dudebros follow their kindred spirit McConaughey to strange places.

 

The Other Woman

Streeterville

What are all the neighborhood’s doctors hiding?
