The Music Box Theatre is teaming up with the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel for their annual Halloween party, take 5, to bring you a screening of the horror classic, CARRIE. Come dressed in your best 70’s ruffles and bellbottoms — they're decking out Stagg Court like the Senior Prom.
Movie snacks, a Bate’s High boozy punch + more will be available for purchase. It is recommended to come before the movie starts to get your spot and settle in. The screening kicks off at 8:50 pm.
In this chilling adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel, withdrawn and sensitive teen Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) faces taunting from classmates at school and abuse from her fanatically pious mother (Piper Laurie) at home. When strange occurrences start happening around Carrie, she begins to suspect that she has supernatural powers. Invited to the prom by the empathetic Tommy Ross (William Katt), Carrie tries to let her guard down, but things eventually take a dark and violent turn. (Director Brian De Palma, 97 minutes, 1976)
