What You'll Get
Watching a movie on the big screen makes audience members feel like they’re really there with the characters, especially during climactic popcorn-eating scenes. Chew and view with this deal to see Midnight Madness Presents: The Rocky Horror Picture Show at The Music Box Theatre. For $12, you get two general-admission tickets on Wednesday, October 31, at 10 p.m. (a $24 value).
Halloween brings The Rocky Horror Picture Show to a theater, dripping with vines and red velvet, that provides an ambiance perfectly suited to the kind of late-night B-movies the film spoofs. As archetypal pair of squares Brad and Janet approach the castle of the fabulous Dr. Frank-N-Furter and meet his minions—including decrepit butler Riff Raff, patched-together golden boy Rocky, and, played by Meat Loaf, rock-and-roller Eddie—a shadow cast of actors clothed in lingerie gyrates in front of the screen. In the audience, a decades-long tradition of crowd participation carries on as guests are encouraged to participate in a group “Time Warp” dance, shine a flashlight during the song “Over at the Frankenstein Place,” and pop a balloon if their date falls asleep.<p>

About The Music Box Theatre
An ornate relic of Chicago's 1920s movie houses, The Music Box Theatre floods its screens with a rotating lineup of cult classics and the latest indie and foreign art films. The theater also provides patrons with a newly unveiled selection of wine and craft beers. Occasionally punctuated by live organ music, the main auditorium evokes an Italian courtyard beneath a cloudy midnight sky. The theater's original manager, Whitey, is said to haunt its aisles, watching over his legacy and hoping to finally catch Rocky's ending.
