Is Movie Going Dead or Alive? LIVE STREAM EVANSTON

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Join Chicago Tribune Film Critic Michael Phillips for a conversation about how we watch movies today, and what we are in danger of losing. We will look at viewing habits, changing tastes, the Pandemic, and our own living rooms—and how these things have imperiled the theatrical experience. We all have great memories of movie-going in our collective past. Is it really time to say goodbye to the theatrical film-going tradition?
Michael Phillips has been the Chicago Tribune’s film critic since 2006. He appeared frequently on At the Movies with Ebert & Roeper, first as a guest critic and later becoming a cohost with Richard Roeper. He has introduced over 100 films as host on Turner Classic Movies, taught cinema studies and arts journalism around the nation, and he guest hosts ‘Filmspotting’ on Chicago Public Radio.
