Tuesday, August 24, 6pm
“The Wiz” (1978, G)
Rained out when it was screened as part of the 2019 Summer Film Series, this American musical adventure fantasy is presented to celebrate the 2021 Year of Chicago Music.
Tuesday, August 31, 6pm
“The Dark Knight” (2008, PG-13)
This superhero film based on the DC Comics character Batman was our 2016 Made In Chicago Audience Choice Winner. It truly showcases Chicago.
Tuesday, September 14, 6pm
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” (1975, R)
This notorious horror parody — a fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock ‘n’ roll, among other things — tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry). The film — a bizarre musical co-starring Meat Loaf and Richard O’Brien — bombed in its initial release but later gained a cult following at midnight showings. For 40 years, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” has delighted audiences and terrified parents. The Music Box Theatre is the proud Chicago home of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Every screening has a shadowcast of the film (that’s actors acting in front of the screen during the film) performed by the excellent Midnight Madness!
