Seventy Five North is teaming up with Film Streams for a free outdoor screening of Cooley High. The lawn opens at 7:00 PM, but the movie will start at sunset, giving you enough time to find a spot or eat/drink with friends and family. Film Streams and Seventy Five North are pleased to present a free, collaborative outdoor screening of the beloved 1975 coming-of-age story Cooley High on Friday, June 21, 2019. The festivities are set to take place on the Highlander Community Lawn, 3003 Patrick Ave. Lawn seating opens at 7 pm, and the film starts at sundown. This deeply felt recollection of adolescent life on Chicago’s near North Side, set in 1964, is based on episodes from the childhood of screenwriter Eric Monte (who also co-created TV’s “Good Times”). The story centers on two high-school senior preparing for post-high-school life: Leroy “Preach” Jackson, who loves to read and aspires to be a Hollywood screenwriter despite rotten grades, and his best friend Richard “Cochise” Morris, a basketball star and suave ladies-man. With humor and realism, Cooley High chronicles their troubles with girls, school, and the police.
(Friday) 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm CST
31st and Patrick
