We have also announced that we will be at Theater Wit for this year’s festival. Theater Wit is located at 1229 W. Belmont in the heart of Chicago’s Belmont Theater District.
In November 2008, Theater Wit took over the space at 1229 W Belmont, formerly the Bailiwick Arts Center. Located in the Lakeview neighborhood, Theater Wit has completely renovated the space, which has a 20 year history as a center for the arts.
We are very excited to be part of this venue's proud tradition of theatrical arts and we will be adding our own blend of incredible film screenings to their mix.
