$5 Mondays are tops. If you want to see a movie in their big theater, your best bet is to catch the show the first week it's out.
For old-time charm and movies that aren't the usual blockbusters, no place beats the Music Box.
Friday's midnight showings are perfect. You'll love watching all the subcultures come out of the woodwork for the unique films here. Enjoy the show! -From your Twitter buddies @RackedChicago
Don't be afraid of sitting near the front. There's a lot of space between the seats and the screen and the screen is not that big for the size of the room.
Tip the Asian guy well, he has quadruplets at home.
See a midnight showing!
Attend a Sound Opinions Movie Night. Kot & DeRo represent.
The Room. Midnight. Do it!
Genre nerds take note - amazing weekend midnight films all year long!
You must see White Christmas and It's A Wonderful Life at Music Box in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Classic movies on the big screen with Christmas carols before each show.
Check to see which theatre your film is in. The small theatre (#2) is super tiny. Theatre #1 is huge.
The MBT accepts Visa and MC, since January 2009. The organist plays most weekend afternoon/evenings. We use real butter on the popcorn if you ask for it, and we have been named the best popcorn in C
If you want to live out your horror movie fears, use their bathroom. I dare you.
One of my favorite spots in Chicago.
You can't beat seeing an old movie, in an old theatre, on the big screen. In August I saw Independence Day- it was awesome
Monday Special: $5 Admission and buy one, get one popcorn and soda!
Snacks are still reasonably priced here; splurge for the big popcorn!
Miss a Midnight Movie and be very dissapointed
Watch classic films
If the movie you're seeing calls for audience participation, participate! The staff sometimes hands out sheets with information about how you can participate better during the film.
Be sure to look at the ceiling when you're here... twinkling stars & floating clouds...
Best Indy cinema in the Midwest!
You won't find a lovelier place to watch Indie or classic Hollywood films.
Best place for Indy-films
My favorite theater in Chicago. A fine blend of new and old with fantastic special events. $5 dollar movie Mondays are a group tradition now.
Not cash only. Great premiers and festivals here. Check out julius meinl a block south for a quick bite before the movie.
See a silent film with music accompaniment played on the original 1929 organ.
The video was clear and stutter free. I hear they have a 4k or ultra-HD setup. Audio, contrary to gripes I've read in a few other reviews, seemed perfectly fine really... I love this place...
Very picturesque display; customer service could be better.
Overbooked a screening by 200-300 people leaving us all in the cold with nothing to show for it.
Nice place, rude customer service.
The National Theatre Coriolanus with Tom Hiddleston was captivating. They announced that there will be another showing at the Music Box Theatre 03/09/2014 @ 11:30am. This showing sold out!
Interactive movies on the big screen. How awesome is that!
Come see the Christmas Show!
Beautiful Indie movie theater! Wonderful decor
Don't miss the French film festival this week here :)
Russell Loveless (Badge #140) sells StreetWise near the Music Box Theatre on Sundays! Be on the look out for him!
the sing-a-long for the Sound of Music was a great time. ;)
ask for sriracha to put on your popcorn!
check out the kinky or obscure films/performances "after midnight"
