Oscar Experience: Chicago

  • Oscar Experience: Chicago

Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

Plenty of people dream of attending the Academy Awards, but for midwestern schlubs like us, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood is just a bit outside our grasp. Never fear—we've got the next best thing in Oscar Experience: Chicago, the city's only Academy Award-sanctioned viewing party, hosted by the Gene Siskel Film Center.

The second week of the 70mm Film Festival at Music Box Theatre features a lineup equally as stacked as the previous week's. Tonight you can catch back-to-back screenings of Playtime, the 1967 classic from director Jacques Tati, and Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, the 2012 classic in the making.

An ex-con quarrels with his girlfriend while attempting to reenter society in Steppenwolf Theatre's The Motherfucker With the Hat.
