This week, we’re proud to open How To Survive A Plague. David France’s new documentary focuses on two coalitions — ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) — whose activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition.

On Friday night, Studio L’amour presents Superstars of Burlesque. The world’s top teasers descend on the Music Box for a night of glitz, glamour and nearly nude debauchery. Shows are at 7:30pm and 10pm. Regular admission and VIP tickets on sale now.
Friday and Saturday at midnight, the Music Box and Mr. Skin present The Telephone Book, one of the greatest cult films you’ve probably never heard of. Producer and legendary ad man Merv Bloch, who has worked with the likes of Woody Allen, Orson Welles and Alfred Hitchcock, will be on hand to discuss the making of the film and his career running ad campaigns for some of cinema’s most iconic films. Tickets on sale now.
We also have the return of the Chicago United Film Festival, featuring a diverse program of features, documentaries, shorts, and classic films (Tickets on sale now), the classic Busby Berkley musical Gold Diggers of 1933 and late night screenings of the hit indie comedy Sleepwalk With Me.
