The Wes Anderson Anthology
Friday 28 February – Thursday 6 March 2014
On Saturday, March 1st, the Music Box will host a special advance screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel (opening in Chicago on March 14th), followed by an in-person Q&A with director/writer Wes Anderson. Additionally, all week we will be screening all of Mr. Anderson’s previous feature films, plus shorts, commercials, and more in a retrospective we’re calling THE WES ANDERSON ANTHOLOGY.
RSVP to the advance screening through our website starting .
From his irreverent debut Bottle Rocket to Moonrise Kingdom, his most assured work to date, Wes Anderson’s cinematic predilections are unmistakable. His rigorously arranged compositions and expressive use of color, all in service of his literary method of storytelling, signal a filmmaker who has risen to an equal rank with his auteurist idols. We are taking a weeklong look at one of the most unique voices in contemporary American cinema – all from 35mm film prints!
