  • The Three Way Movie

    The Black Harvest International Festival of Film and Video presents the Chicago premiere of “THE THREE WAY” August 13th, 2011 @ 8:30pm & August 18th, 2011 @ 8:15pm showing at the Gene Siskel Film Center at 164 North State Street.

    “THE THREE WAY” is a comedic look at the fallout a couple experiences when a secret comes out, with twists that keep audiences guessing to the very end.

    Come check out the the award-winning feature film comedy “San Diego Voice and Viewpoint” calls “spot-on” and “a roller coaster plot of alpha male/female breadwinner relationships.” “THE THREE WAY,” where lovers and friends are forced to reveal their secrets and confront their own lies, is sure to entertain Chicago audiences, as it has filmgoers across the country.

    Members of the cast and crew will be present at the screenings.
