Chicago-- The restored 1927 silent film
Silent film returns to the Music Box Theatre! Featuring Organist Dennis Scott on the Music Box Theatre Organ.

"Chicago impresses by its modern sensibility; its no-holds-barred look at love, lust, law, social mores, and the media; and especially by its delightfully amoral heroine, played to perfection by Phyllis Haver." - Andre Soares, Alt Film Guide

Based on the hit 1926 Broadway play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, Chicago had its origins in articles Watkins wrote for the Chicago Tribune. The articles, typical "sob sister" stories written to appeal to female readers, depicted the plight of Belva Gaertner and Beulah Sheriff Annan, both of whom had been accused of killing their respective lovers. Produced by Cecil B. DeMille and directed by the little-known Chicago-native Frank Urson, the film version of Chicago stars Phyllis Haver as the greedy, heartless, but oh-so-sexy murderess Roxie Hart and top 1920s supporting player Robert Edeson as Roxies attorney, an expert at manipulating jurors, judges, the media, and the U.S. justice system.

Also featuring preshow entertainment by the West End Jazz Band. The West End Jazz Band has, for the past 34 years, recreated the classic music that typifies the twenties and thirties using original arrangements and instrumentation that is true to the style of the era.
