Hearts and Minds @ Film Center

Hearts and Minds, the 1974 documentary about the Vietnam War that was originally shelved for fear of controversy, and eventually won an Oscar when it was released, plays at the Siskel Film Center tonight at 7:30 PM, and Tuesday the 25th at 8:00 PM. A powerful film that unfortunately is still relevant today, Hearts and Minds should not be missed. A newly restored 35mm print will be shown. Tickets are $9 general admission, $5 for Film Center members, and $4 for SAIC students. Film Center: 164 N. State. (312) 846-2600.
