And after your film is over, please join us for the closing night party at Nitehawk Cinema from 9pm to 1am. Dima Dubson, director of How To Act Bad will be curating the music upstairs, and Finger on the Pulse will be DJing downstairs—open bar on select beverages (while products last)!

And don’t forget! Tickets to individual screenings are available online and at each venue. Limited seats are reserved for Northside Film and Premium badgeholders. So come early, stay late, and enjoy the show!

You’ll find your L Mag picks after the jump.
