Skip Elsheimer of A/V Geeks brings his S is for Sissy, a touring selection of educational films with dubious gender messages, to Chicago in a presentation of The Nightingale.

Featured 16mm films include Soapy the Germ Fighter (1951), in which a cake of soap teaches a boy that cleanliness isn't necessarily effeminate, William's Dolls (1985), about an athletic young man whose grandfather attempts to cure his interest in baby dolls, Fears of Children (1951), in which a boy's father is too strict and his mother too lenient, and Neurotic Behavior—A Psychodynamic View (1973), which examines the role that toilet training may play in a college student's trouble with girls.

It's tonight a 8 p.m. at Cinema Borealis, 1550 N. Milwaukee Ave., 4th Floor. $8.
