Discount admission to Gene Siskel Film Center
New discounts to consider: Matinee and Two-film discount
Where: Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N State St, 312-846 2800.
I recently wanted to see two films and noticed at the two-film discount.
Buy a ticket at our regular prices for either NAME OF FILM 1 or NAME OF FILM 2, and get a ticket for any show of the other film at this discount rate with proof of your original purchase: General Admission $7; Students $5; Members $4.
(This discount price applies to the second film only. Discount available in person at the box office only.)
Combine a matinee (Friday 2pm-4pm only) and the two-film discount
The first film I wanted to see was a Matinee so the ticket was $8 instead of $12 and then the second film was $7 instead of $12 for a total savings of $9 or 37.5%. You can only get this discount at the box office which saves an additional $1.50. I bought both tickets at the same time. Unfortunately this isn’t available for every film.
