CUFF: Chicago Underground Film Festival at 07:10 PM
On April 2nd - 6th, The Logan will host the 21st annual Chicago Underground Film Festival!
CUFF features independent, experimental, and documentary films from around the world. Check out their website for more information: www.cuff.org
"Founded in 1993, The Chicago Underground Film Festival (CUFF) is a year-round organization dedicated to the work of film and video makers with defiantly independent visions. Unlike many other 'independent' film events, our goal is not to imitate old guard, market-driven events such as Sundance but Instead to focus on the artistic, aesthetic and fun side of independent filmmaking. CUFF promotes works that dissent radically in form, content and technique from both the tired conventions of Hollywood and the increasingly stagnant IndieWood mainstream."

The Legend of Cool "Disco" Dan Screening at 09:52 PM
Land and Sea Dept. is pleased to offer up another film screening, in this case the Chicago debut of The Legend of Cool “Disco” Dan, a documentary feature that tells the story of Washington D.C. in the 1980s, through the eyes of graffiti legend Cool “Disco Dan.
“Blending exclusive interviews with dozens of local and national celebrities along with archival footage, Washington natives offer the most comprehensive portrait to date on this critical decade. The development of Go-Go, D.C.’s distinctive style of urban music, racial tensions, crews, sensationalist media, crack and graffiti are important pieces of the story.”
Graffiti historian Roger Gastman and filmmaker Joseph Pattisall spent over ten years researching and documenting the unknown stories of Cool “Disco” Dan’s Washington D.C., and we’re looking forward to sharing the results with you at the beautiful Logan Theatre in November.

Sunday, October 20th - 4 PM
Rwanda - Director: Joel Karekezi
Best friends Manzi and Karemera find themselves on opposing sides in Rwanda’s ethnic civil war, with Tutsi Karemera’s family paying a horrific price for Manzi’s allegiance to his Hutu heritage. When Manzi is released from prison fifteen years later, his return re-opens old wounds. Filmmaker Joel Karekezi draws from his own experience as a survivor of Rwanda’s violence in creating this moving account of two former friends who must contend with the unimaginable horrors in their past.
"Imbabazi: The Pardon" was produced by Joel Karekezi, Casey Schroen & Veronique N. Doumbe. For more information, visit www.imbabazi.com.

While he is earnest in his passion for teaching, his extra-curricular attentions are drawn to a gorgeous young woman.

When the girl goes missing, a female detective comes snooping around, fueling Parker’s unstable, even dangerous, behavior as she gets closer to the shocking truth.

Brooke Herbert Photography at 07:11 PM
Through out the renovation process, we have been lucky enough to have the talented photographer Brooke Herbert Hayes on our team. Brooke has been with us from the start, photographing the theatre as it was before the paint was stripped and the old, rickety seats were removed. Through out construction, she braved the work site for some in-progress shots, capturing the look of astonishment on the owner's face when the marble was discovered underneath the lobby walls.
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/thelogan/public_html/components/com_blogs/helpers/route.php on line 135
Her most recent work for us has highlighted some of the architectural and decorative Art Deco details that we've taken time to include in our remodeling. She'll be here for the soft opening event, continuing to help us document what has been a transformational journey!
Brooke's photos of The Logan Theatre are featured on our website and our Facebook page. Below are some of her favorites.
Brooke Herbert Hayes is a freelance photographer who lives in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Brooke moved here in 2009 after receiving her degree from the University of Louisville where she studied photography and art history. Brooke currently works as an assistant to Chicago photographers and does freelance work. In addition, she works closely with I Am Logan Square as a photographer and manages and contributes regularly to the IALS blog. Brooke has also curated and exhibited work in Louisville and Chicago and is part of the Chicago Photography Collective, a group of working photographers with a gallery space in Block 37 in downtown Chicago. Brooke's main subjects of interest to photograph are interior spaces, food, homes and the occasional wedding or two. She has spent much time photographing her large family in Southern Indiana and Kentucky and has produced two photo essays on them called Dwellings and Empty Nest. When she's not photographing, she enjoys hanging out with her husband and two cats-- cooking, camping and having other adventures. Check out Brooke's website for more photos--there you can also find a link to her Chicago Photography Collective page, her blog and tumblr.
