The Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St., is presenting the Chicago premiere of Rebels on Pointe through Nov. 30.
Rebels on Pointe is a 2016 documentary about ihe New York-based Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlothe gay, all-male dance troupe that has, for 40 years, satirized ballet classics.
Clips provide a look at the onstage action as the Trocks, costumed in ballerina drag, perform venerable works like "Swan Lake" with technique and athleticism while injecting their subtle and not-so-subtle trademark humor in the form of comic pratfalls, tutu malfunctions and maverick solos.
In addition, the center will present a local premiere run of the biopic Tom of Finland Jan. 5-18, 2018.
Tickets to each screening—unless stated otherwiseare $11/general admission, $7/students, $6/Film Center members, and $5/Art Institute of Chicago ( AIC ) staff and School of the Art Institute of Chicago ( SAIC ) faculty, staff, and students.
