Though the ’80s are trending, that isn’t why the former workout-video guru took center stage July 29 at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel, Chicago (221 N. Columbus). Rather, event co-chairs Corbin Horn and Lauren Robishaw celebrated two-time Academy Award-winner Jane Fonda with the Gold Hugo Career Achievement Award for her successful tenure in the film and television industry. After a conversation led by film critic Richard Roeper, more than 300 guests toasted the iconic actress with cocktails inspired by her movies. Proceeds benefit Cinema/Chicago’s education program.
Get involved: Cinema/Chicago presents A Taste of Cinema — a weekly free film screening — at the the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington) now through Oct. 4. For more information, visit Chicagofilmfestival.com.
