CHICAGO – Another Chicago cinema gem is reopening after 18 long months in pandemic shutdown. FACETS is a multimedia gem co-founded by legendary film influencer Milos Stehlik, which has resided on Fullerton Avenue west of the DePaul neighborhood for nearly 50 years. During the shutdown its theater and physical structure was renovated, and it reopens on Friday, September 17th, 2021, with a two-for-one ticket offer on the screening of “Anne at 13,000 Feet,” a Canadian film by Kazik Raswanski.

“Anne at 13,000 Feet” stars Deragh Campbell as the title character, a shy and socially awkward daycare worker whose attitude to her life and work is radically transformed after she skydives for the first time. In the meantime, Anne goes through the motions of life as a 20-something woman in Toronto, clashes with her co-workers, goes on an awkward Tinder date, and serves as maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding. Anne suffers from an unspecified anxiety disorder, which remains undiagnosed throughout the course of the story.
