Logan Theatre

Logan Theatre

City North 14

When this 14-screen multiplex opened on Western Avenue in late 1999, its distinguishing architectural feature was a giant popcorn-box mascot looming over the entrance. After General Cinemas sold the building to AMC, the sublimely tacky mascot came down, and in June 2006 the multiplex changed hands again, taken over by Kerasotes Theatres. Like any multiplex, City North 14 caters to kids, with a rowdy arcade in the lobby, but the projection is competent and the staff are reasonably polite and friendly. Tickets are $10 (matinees $8, $6 before noon Friday-Sunday and holidays); on Tuesdays all screenings are $6, and there’s free popcorn to boot. Validated parking in the adjoining garage is $2, and party rooms are available for $50. | 2600 N. Western | 773-394-1600 | Now Showing | kerasotes.com

Logan Theatre

Built in 1915 as the Paramount, this 975-seat theater is the city’s last second-run movie house, giving patrons a chance to catch up with recent releases for a $3 ticket. The space has been carved up into four screening rooms, the seats are uncomfortable, and the floors are usually sticky. But projection is adequate, and the building is a neighborhood landmark with its triangular marquee and vertical neon sign (which is no longer lit). | 2646 N.

Open University of the Left

A “cooperative educational project” focusing on progressive politics, Open University of the Left presents frequent forums, speakers, and screenings at the offices of In These Times. Projected from DVD, movies range from political dramas like Reds and The Battle of Algiers to muckraking documentaries like The Take and Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price. A $5 donation is requested, though no one is turned away. The next scheduled screening is Silvia Malagrino’s Burnt Oranges (9/10). | 2040 N. Milwaukee | 847-677-5474 | openuniversityoftheleft.org
