Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

This weekend, the Music Box is for lovers, so grab your best guy or gal and head down to the theatre as we celebrate the holiday!

On Valentine’s Day, come see The Princess Bride, the fairy tale that puts the “comedy” in “romantic comedy”, with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, and yes, some kissing. The interactive screening comes complete with prop bags, a pre-show costume contest, and more! Tickets on sale now.

Saturday afternoon, it’s time for our annual screening of the classic film Casablanca, beginning with a special “Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Sing-Along” featuring a selection of favorite love songs complete with projected lyrics and accompaniment from the Music Box organ. After the sing-a-long you and your sweetheart can hold hands, canoodle, and watch Bogart and Bergman in the timeless Casablanca, one of the great romantic films of all time. Tickets on sale now.

And if you’re not the sentimental type, come by for our midnight screenings of My Bloody Valentine. We’re screening a vintage 35mm print of this holiday slasher, featuring extra gore never shown theatrically!
