ArcLight Chicago Gets Set To Laugh With The Second City Series
Since 1959, the city of Chicago has seen some of the world's greatest comedic forces born and bred at The Second City sketch comedy improvisation workshop. Talent as varied as Joan Rivers to Dan Castellaneta have risen from their ranks, with many of its most famous alums forming the backbone of the new age of edgy humor propelled to the mainstream by the likes of Saturday Night Live. And then there are the movies...

Under the guise of the ever expanding ArcLight Presents series ArcLight Chicago is teaming up with The Second City to bring to windy city moviegoers a selection of classic comedies made by its members. Keeping in line with Seconds, each screening will take place on the second Wednesday of each month.

The series kicks off February 10th, with yes, you guessed it Harold Ramis' Groundhog Day. Producer Trevor Albert will be in attendance to lead a discussion after the film.

Moving ahead, March 9th sees Second City's Tyler Alexander and John Hughes' son James Hughes for Trains, Plains, And Automobiles. Come April 13, Kelly Leonard, President & CEO, Kelly Leonard Productions, will present Mean Girls, with a script by alum Tina Fey.
