In order to help limit the spread of COVID-19 some exhibitors have cancelled or postponed screenings, and more will likely follow suit. These screenings are crossed out on the list below. For the first time in the history of Celluloid Chicago we cannot in good conscience encourage people to go to public screenings. However we will continue to update this list so it can serve, as it has for nearly a decade, as a record of exhibition history.
