Upcoming Special Events
For 31 years the Music Box Theatre has been the Chicago home for White Christmas and It’s a Wonderful Life, but once again, we present an amazing Alternative Christmas Double Feature.
This holiday season, don’t let yourself get cabin fever – come celebrate with a legend of cinema, Mr. Stanley Kubrick! We’re screening nearly every film this former photographer made – all from 35mm prints! It’s our gift to you, dear cinephile. Films include A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, LOLITA, DR. STRANGELOVE, KILLER’S KISS, and many more. And yes, we will be screening EYES WIDE SHUT on Christmas Day!
Wed 31 Dec, 9:00pm
