Sunsets in CHICAGO – Gene Siskel
Sunsets, the feature film still is getting it’s day. It’s now played twice in Chicago to not the largest crowds, but twice at Siskel Film Center. The first time they (Siskel and Ebert) were both alive and well with a powerful show that influenced crowds to see movies. Today, Siskel has passed away and Ebert is working hard through a stroke. Rating movies has gone to new folks, mostly online. Films have changed. The medium and technique are different. Yet, the film center still exists and makes movies look good. The front door itself is a reminder that you’re entering a real cinema center. Don’t mess around inside. This is the Rucker Park of film.
Of course with a big group, it’s all about Korean food since they’re open late. How Asian, right? I hope a ritual like this never goes out of style. San Soo Gab San is one of these places. They give you an insane amount of side dishes (panchan). Although it was cold outside, we left as many of our articles of clothing in the car. This place will get you smelling pretty.
