The Music Box Theater is Chicago’s premier independent movie theater, showcasing only foreign, indie, cult and classic films on a daily basis. The theater first opened its doors just two months before the Great Depression in 1929 and has tried its best to remain true to its origins throughout the decades. Draped in red velvet, the 800 person theater has screened everything from Casablanca to The Craft and everything in between. Stop by for cheap, weeknight deals and intimate midnight showings all year long. If you do happen to swing by, make sure to grab a bucket of popcorn on your way in – The Music Box makes theirs with real butter.
