Happy Thursday Music Boxers,
This week, NOIR CITY: CHICAGO returns to the Music Box, co-presented by the Film Noir Foundation! Focusing on the years immediately following WWII, this year’s NOIR CITY: CHICAGO festival features classic noir films from France, Japan, Argentina, Spain, Italy, and Britain, as well as a sampling of homegrown Hollywood rarities. The 17 films reveal that the cinematic movement known as Noir spanned the globe, and its style, sexiness and cynicism crossed all borders. All festival tickets can be used as double feature tickets, giving you two films for the price of one, just like the good old days! Check out the Full Schedule and purchase Advance Tickets now!
Plus, when you come to Noir City, you can pick up a copy of our Fall calendar, featuring dozens of films and special events through the end of November that you can only find at the Music Box!
Continuing this week is The One I Love, the romance with a mysterious twist starring Elizabeth Moss and Mark Duplass. The RedEye gives the film 3.5 stars and calls it, “insightful, strange and engrossing.”
Celebrate Batman’s 75th anniversary with our midnight screenings of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, which takes the adventures of the Dark Knight’s beloved 90s cartoon Batman: The Animated Series to the big screen, presented in 35mm! Easily one of the best movies to ever feature Caped Crusader.
On Saturday & Sunday, catch Bob Fosse’s magnificent film adaptation of the smash musical Cabaret. Featuring Liza Minnelli in her iconic role, this Academy Award-winning tale of passion and politics is not to be missed.
Also this weekend, catch our midnight screenings of the blockbuster Lucy, featuring Scarlett Johansson in full-“Action Hero” mode, and our matinee presentations of Monty Python: Live (Mostly), the acclaimed reunion show of the legendary comedy group.
See you at the movies
