Music Box Theatre
Attention Nick Offerman Fans: Construction on Southport
 
Friday, March 8th, 2013

Hey everyone,

If you’re receiving this e-mail, it means you purchased tickets to one of this weekend’s screenings of Somebody Up There Likes Me, with special guest Nick Offerman.
We wanted to let you know that right now, Southport Ave is undergoing some extensive construction to replace a water main (More info at THIS LINK). As a result, parking along Southport is even more limited than usual.

If possible, please consider options other than driving to get to the theatre. We’re just a few blocks away from the Ashland bus, the Clark bus, and the Southport Brown Line, among others. If you must drive, please give yourself a little extra time to get to the theatre.

That’s all for now, see you this weekend!

Friday, March 8th – Thursday, March 14th, 2013

 
 

Somebody Up There Likes Me with Nick Offerman in person!

Purchase advance tickets online

Nick Offerman joins us live for 4 special screenings of the new film Somebody Up There Likes Me!

Somebody Up There Likes Me is a quirky comedy about the charmed life of one Max Youngman (Keith Poulson), who appears to be blessed with a dry sense of irony, accidental good fortune, and eternal youth. Over a period of three plus decades, Max, his best friend Sal (Nick Offerman) and his second wife Lyla (Jess Weixler) stumble through infidelities, divorce, therapy, and poverty in a breezy series of surreal jumps forward in time.

Featuring an original score from Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio, animated sequences from Bob Sabiston (A Scanner Darkly), produced by Offerman and directed by cult auteur Bob Byington (Harmony & Me), Somebody Up There Likes Me is a charming, droll, and utterly original reflection on the cycle of life.

Somebody Up There Likes Me opens at the Music Box on Friday, March 8th, and runs through at least Thursday, March 14th. These five special screenings with Nick Offerman will be the only screenings with advanced ticket sales.

Somebody Up There Likes Me

A film by Bob Byington starring Nick Offerman, Keith Poulson and Jess Weixler

 

A comedic fable about a man watching his life fly by.


“Consistently silly and poignant at once.”
–Eric Kohn, indieWIRE

Max (Keith Poulson), along with his best friend Sal (Nick Offerman, Parks & Recreation) and the woman they both adore, Lyla (Jess Weixler), stumble through thirty-five years of mandatory but seemingly unfulfilling entanglements.

Featuring an original score from Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio, stunning animated sequences from Bob Sabiston (A Scanner Darkly), produced by Offerman and directed by cult auteur Bob Byington (Harmony & Me), the experience of life sneaking up on you while time seemingly stands still has never been more surreal and charmingly entertaining.
