39. Music Box Theatre
Location: 3733 North Southport Ave.
Satisfy your craving for indie, foreign, cult, classic and horror flicks at this funky little venue, which dates back to 1929—and is apparently haunted by a ghost named “Whitey,” who managed the theater from opening night until 1977.
The theatre also puts on special events, like the upcoming screening of the ESPN doc Catching Hell about the foul ball deflected by Chicagoan Steve Bartman in Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS. The screening will be accompanied by a panel discussion featuring director Alex Gibney, producer Gary Cohen, EPSN writer Wayne Drehs, and Chasing October documentary director Matt Liston.
