Upcoming events


Elevated Films Chicago is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness and promote the arts in Chicago neighborhoods in a way that is approachable and affordable for everyone.  Net profits are donated to Chicago's youth arts.

Elevated Films has partnered to produce Time Out Chicago’s exclusive free screening of ‘Good Burger’ + first look at Nickelodeon's 'All That' hosted by Kel Mitchell

The much-loved 1997 film starring Kenan and Kel is coming to Chop Shop, Wicker Park, and you could be there too! If you were a fan of the hit Nickelodeon show All That, and the hugely popular '90s film Good Burger, then we've got excellent news. This June 9, we're putting on a free screening of Good Burger, hosted by none other than Chicago native Kel Mitchell!

The event is free, but you need to RSVP to attend. There are heaps of reasons why you'll want to get in fast (free orange soda!) – and one is that you'll get a sneak peek of the all-new All That, which will premiere on Nickelodeon on June 15. In addition, there’ll be tasty burgers, complimentary popcorn, a replica of the iconic Good Burger Burger-mobile and lots more family fun.

Plus, the first 50 guests to sign up will get a chance to meet and greet Kel Mitchell. Just maybe avoid asking him who loves orange soda...
