Cinecenter

"Hey, whatever happened to that place we used to screen at?"

---Tak Fujimoto, Director of Photography, "Ferris Buehler's Day Off," Silence of the Lambs," etc.

This smart highrise was home for Chicago's Cinecenter until it closed mid-June 1993. Cinecenter was THE post production center for feature films shooting in the Chicago area for many years, providing editing rooms and equipment, sound transfer services and dailies screening facilities. The three screening rooms were also kept very busy with special previews and critic's screenings. Cinecenter was proud to be Siskel & Ebert's primary venue for previewing the many films they review.

Cinecenter's walls were decorated with framed posters for the films for which it provided post-production services.
