The Music Box Theatre

Theatre Details

Music Box Theatre
3733 N SouthPort Ave.
Chicago, IL


The Music Box Theater has been home to the Midnight Madness cast / Rocky Horror in the city of Chicago for almost a dozen years now. The Music Box is a VERY Rocky friendly venue. The management and employees are all very friendly and top notch, they know our cast, our show, our audience, and fully support the ongoing showing of Rocky Horror with our cast.

The Music Box specializes in showing classic / archival movies on celluloid film and can show 16mm, 35mm, and 70mm films (as well as 2k/4k digital) in the main theater. The main theater has a seating capacity of 748 people (there is also a second theater with a 70 person capacity).

Alcohol at the Music Box


The Music Box has a liquor license and can / will be serving liquor to during our event! BRING YOUR I.D. with you. They are DAMN SERIOUS about making sure they continue to be able to serve liquor at their establishment and will refuse service to ANYONE that may look underage, have a fake ID, already be excessively intoxicated, and will definitely err on the side of keeping their license as that is worth more to them than serving a couple of drinks to you may be. We are working with the theater to possibly provide some Rocky Horror / Shock Treatment themed drink specials for the night of our show. We'll update this page if we know in advance.




Disclaimer; As with all convention schedules, all events and amenities are subject to change. We have tried to give a rough estimate of the schedule for planning, but any number of things can have an effect on how and even if the event will occur, including financial, hotel/theater restrictions/requirements, all the way down to "we just decided not to do it." While the website *should* always reflect the current status of an event or feature, it's possible some things may be chafed or canceled with little to no notice. We suggest you add/follow our our Twitter feed as any significant changes up to and through the convention weekend will be tweeted.
