Music Box Theatre
Check out Industry Tuesdays at the Music Box
 
Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Hey film fans!

The third Tuesday of every month this summer, friends and colleagues in the food and beverage world are invited to gather for an original Chicago happening: Industry Tuesdays at the Music Box. This Tuesday at 2pm, join us for a the classic Spaghetti Western The Big Gundown.

Screenings will be preceded by tastings of spectacular, rather rare beers from the exceptional portfolio of importer Vanberg & DeWulf, the only beer importer ever nominated for a James Beard Foundation award. (The founders of the company live in Chicago and are fans of the Music Box.) Here’s your chance to hobnob with fellow foodies, catch a great film from our Classic Matinee Series, and sip, savor, and celebrate specialty beers from Belgium, France, Italy, England, and Iceland.

Doors and tastings will open at 1:15pm. No alcohol will be available for sale at the theatre, but all selections offered at the tastings can be purchased at any Binny’s Beverage Depot location. Representatives of Vanberg & DeWulf Beer Distributors and Binny’s & Wirtz Beverage Illinois will be on hand to educate filmgoers on the beers of choice and each screening will include an introduction of the film. For those who have always said, “I love the classic matinees the Music Box Theatre offers, but 11:30am on a weekend is impossible for me to attend,” here is your chance!

The Big Gundown

A film by Sergio Sollima starring Lee Van Cleef, Tomas Milian, Luisa Rivelli

Taking on what he hopes will be one of his last manhunts, Corbett sets out with a posse to find the Mexican peasant Manuel “Chuchillo” Sanchez (Tomas Milian), a man wanted for the murder of a child. Original Italian release version featuring nearly 20 minutes of footage never before seen in the U.S.
