Music Box Theatre
This old picture house dates back to 1929 and still has its original architecture and design. Known for its independent and foreign films, it also holds special events from the Chicago Film Society and the Chicago Critics Film Festival. Look out for “Whitey,” the manager of the Music Box Theatre from its opening night until 1977 when he fell asleep on the couch in the lobby and never woke up—he can still be felt pacing Aisle 4.
