Music Box theater is truly a step back in time and the stage area brings a smile every time someone steps back on it. A History buffs dream. I actually saw my first movie there as a tween and now take my children there when they provide a family film. It's a bucket list must especially their interactive Sound of Music!

The Music Box is a year-round film festival for Chicago: they feature weekend matinees and midnight movies, independent and classic films, annual festivals like Noir City, and special events like Sundance Presents. They're always pushing themselves: even when the quarterly calendar is out, they will continue to add special events, screenings with a director Q&A or a last-minute midnight show. Most of their classic films are shown on 35mm, and they are one of the only theatres in the country capable of showing films in 70mm. Cinephile heaven.

Great place to catch an independent film. Small secondary screening room but cool decorations and atmosphere. Dedicatedly a date night place, unless you are doing crazy Rocky Horror Picture Show.

The seats in the theatre are creeky and uncomfortable and from a previous generation. You will love everything else about this theatre. Consider it a throwback to childhood when going to the movie was more of an experience and less of a trip to the buffet.

The last time I went to this theatre was for a movie screening. The seat that I was sitting is was broken and very uncomfortable. I was told by the manager that that theatre (the small one at the far end) was going to be remodeled soon. That's a good thing as the seats are very small and uncomfortable. The decor is amazing and looks more like the big theatres downtown where you go to see plays. This is on a busy street where it is very hard to find parking. You will have to park several blocks away and walk. This theatre is not close to me, so unless there is a special event or independent movie that is not showing anywhere else, this is not high on my list of movie theatres. #CityExperts @GoogleLocalCHI

I love this old fashioned movie theater. The old movies they screen are always cult classics and the concessions are very fairly priced. They also serve beer so it's a great place to have an after dinner movie and drinks. This place is the only theater I've ever been in where I love being in the front row because a lot of the screening I've been to have Q&As with directors, producers, and actors.

This is the place for art house and independent films in the city, but the seats are damned uncomfortable! This theater is old and I honestly thing it should really stay old but it's hard to it in here for too long. They do serve alcohol which is nice and they have great events that are unfortunately usually only marketed on their website.

No surprise here how amazing this theatre is, but it was a recent arthouse cinema consumer survey that reminded me of the benefits the Music Box offers to individuals, to the Chicago community, and to the larger film community. The quality of life for moviegoers is better because this theatre exists.
