$19 for an All-Access Pass to The Second Annual Chicago French Film Festival ($40 Value)

The weekend of July 27–29 fills The Music Box Theatre with nine screenings of new arrivals on the French scene. Complex family entanglements are on display in opening-night presentation A Better Life's tale of love in the midst of immigration, creditors, and a sinking business; Sleepless Night's kidnapping drama; and Beloved, starring Catherine Deneuve and her real-life daughter Chiara Mastroianni in a musical of a mother and daughter’s parallel lives.

George Méliès’ groundbreaking 1902 work, A Trip to the Moon, gets fleshed out by a soundtrack by French electronica band Air and a documentary on the arduous full-color restoration process. The Rabbi’s Cat, an animated feature, throws a very talkative feline into the lives of a rabbi and his loving daughter.

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. 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.
