Music Box Theatre

In Lakeview off Southport Avenue, bright red lights illuminate the sign above an old-fashioned marquee at this retro theater. Completed in 1929 when movie palaces were popping up all around downtown Chicago, the Music Box Theatre is now considered the best theater in the city for foreign and independent films and has also hosted such notable premieres as Gone Baby Gone. The main 800-seat auditorium retains original features like the enormous columns, dramatic red curtain, and cove-lit ceiling, which resembles a night sky with twinkling stars and moving clouds. Monthly silent movie screenings are accompanied by the theater organ.
