The Music Box Theatre gives back.

Each year the Music Box Theatre gives over $6,000 in ticket donations for auctions to benefit local non-profit organizations and schools. Many special events held at the Music Box Theatre are held by non-profit organizations.

The Music Box Massacre (our annual 24-hour horror film marathon) and the Sci Fi Spectacular (14 hours of sci-fi films) are both co-presented by the Movieside Movie Festival and benefit Vital Bridges, which helps people throughout metropolitan Chicago impacted by HIV and AIDS to improve their health and build self-sufficiency by providing food, nutrition, housing, case management and prevention services.

In December of 2010, attendees of the “27th Annual Music Box Christmas Show” donated nearly $2,500 to charity, and the Music Box Theatre matched those donations to give $1,000 to the Red Door Animal Shelter, The Center on Halsted, The Trevor Project, Gilda’s Club of Chicago, and Franklin Fine Arts Center.
