The Music Box Theatre has been back in action at a significantly reduced capacity since late February, and it's kicking off the summer with a celebration of the cinematic experience—aptly titled Back on the Big Screen. Teaming up with streaming platform Mubi, the Music Box will present two weeks of repertory screenings, including classic films by Orson Welles, Terrence Malick and Dario Argento.
The first week of screenings features epics that benefit from being shown on a huge screen in a dark room, including Orson Welles' Touch of Evil, a rare print of Akira Kurosawa's Ran and a 4K restoration of Dario Argento's horror classic Suspiria. The second week of Back on the Big Screen includes films that revolve around movie theaters and the cinematic experience, such as Giuseppe Tornatore Cinema Paradiso, Joe Dante's Matinee and a 16mm print of Sarah Jacobson's indie film, Mary Jane's Not a Virgin Anymore.
