• “Though shalt not take the Portage Theater in vain!”

As you may have read on this very blog, local film buffs are up in arms over the idea that the Portage Theater may change hands in 2015 and be converted into a church. Among the many fine organizations that would be evicted is the Northwest Chicago Film Society, which, on Saturday night, will present a special 35-millimeter screening of . . . The Ten Commandments. Nice try, guys, but I’m pretty sure you can’t petition the Lord with popcorn.
