News: Music Box Theatre in Chicago Announces "Son of 70MM Film Festival"

With film projection an increasing rarity in theaters across the country, The Music Box Theatre's upcoming retrospective, "Son of 70MM Film Festival," should register as a must-see event for any self-respecting cinephile. The two-week event, running from Friday, July 11th, through Thursday, July 24th, will feature some of cinema's greatest achievements in the format they were meant to be experienced in by moviegoers. 

Audiences at the historic Chicago venue will have the opportunity to see Omar Sharif materialize out of a desert mirage in David Lean's 1962 epic "Lawrence of Arabia," Keir Dullea embark on the ultimate trip in Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi landmark, "2001: A Space Odyssey" and James Stewart plunge into a vortex of obsession in Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 thriller, "Vertigo"—all in inimitable 70mm. The other seven selections are Richard Fleischer's 1968 musical, "Doctor Dolittle," Stanley Kubrick's 1960 historical drama, "Spartacus," Douglas Trumbull's 1983 cult classic, "Brainstorm," Paul Thomas Anderson's 2012 spellbinder, "The Master," Steven Lisberger's 1982 action/adventure, "TRON," Stanley Kramer's 1963 slapstick behemoth, "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" and Franklin J. Schaffner's 1970 biopic, "Patton."

Tickets are $12 and a limited number of festival passes will be available for $70. The full festival lineup will soon be available on the Music Box's official site.
