Happy Thursday, Music Boxers
In 1983, The Music Box Theatre reopened after a few years of hard times. To celebrate our the Music Box Theatre’s 30th Anniversary as a repertory cinema, we’re dedicating two weeks to special events, double features, and much more!
On Friday, Nov 22nd, at 6pm, we’ll be hosting a reception, followed by a double feature of Hitchcock’s North By Northwest and the Coen Brothers’ The Big Lebowski!
On Saturday, Nov 23rd, come by for our Winter Calendar Release Party. The evening kicks off at 7pm with a reception and live jazz music. At 8pm, we start with vaudeville acts, and a new restoration of Harold Lloyd’s classic The Freshman with accompaniment by the Music Box Theatre organ! Tickets on sale now.
The fun continues as we roll out double features including Bonnie & Clyde & Pierrot le Fou, Singin’ in the Rain & A Clockwork Orange, Citizen Kane & His Girl Friday, and more. Check out the full schedule and purchase tickets now.
A Touch of Sin is a thrilling reflection on contemporary China. Written and directed by master filmmaker Jia Zhangkewas, the film inspired by four shocking (and true) events that forced the world’s fastest growing economy into a period of self-examination. The Dissolve calls it “A bold, invigorating statement from a director who keeps reinventing himself”.
Our weekend matinees include Rita Hayworth’s most famous performance in the steamy noir Gilda and the mesmerizing reflection on art Museum Hours. Our midnight movies are Chan-wook Park’s original revenge thriller Oldboy and the intergalactic The Visitor, a film you must see to believe!
And don’t forget, after you’re finished with Thanksgiving festivities next weekend, swing by for our Sing-A-Long Sound of Music! Our annual screenings include the classic Julie Andrews musical with lyrics on screen, plus a preshow costume contest, goodie bags, and more. These shows sell out, so get your tickets today!
See you at the movies
