Those looking for an alternative to blockbuster movies can find foreign, classic and independent cinema at the Music Box Theatre.
The Music Box is a Chicago landmark. It was first opened in 1929 as a “Cinema Palace” that sat 800. Designed to make movie-goers feel like they are sitting in an open-air theatre in Italy, the décor is rich but spacious.
There are two screens that show films at the Music Box – so there is always a choice. Likewise, with the Matinee Series and the Midnight Movies, film-lovers can choose when they wish to see the movie.
From classics like The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Funny Girl to documentaries like Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired The Music Box has a film for everyone.
As a bonus, the Music Box is the largest seating theatre in Chicago.
