In Almost Famous, music is a reason -- perhaps THE reason -- to live.
On Wednesday April 23rd, join Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot for a special screening of Almost Famous at the Music Box Theatre.
Jim and Greg will talk about Cameron Crowe's love letter to musical discovery with a note-perfect soundtrack. Plus, Jim will share his memories of the late actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman and the late critic Lester Bangs. And you'll be able to enjoy Goose Island beer while listening to audio of a young Jim DeRogatis speaking with his hero, Lester Bangs.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the chat & screening will start at 7:30. Tickets are $10 in advance. Remaining tickets will be sold for $12 cash at the door. WBEZ members get $1 off. All proceeds go to benefit Sound Opinions and Chicago Public Media. Please note this movie is Rated R.
Advance tickets will be available at the door under the purchaser's name. Please note tickets will not be mailed.
