Windy City Double Feature Picture Show, hosted by film historians Adam Carston and Mike Vanderbilt, is a bi-weekly podcast that celebrates Chicago’s rich moviegoing past by exploring historic double features that once screened in The Loop’s bustling movie district, neighborhoods, drive-ins, or suburban theaters. Each episode the hosts take a deep dive into the movies and the glorious theaters that screened them, setting the time and the place by examining local news, national trends, popular culture, and what else was playing around town. It’s like a cinematic time machine! 

This month, the hosts are bringing the show to the Music Box garden, taking everyone back to August 9, 1963, when cult favorites Blood Feast and Scum of the Earth—both directed by Chicago film maverick Herschell Gordon Lewis (The Godfather of Gore!)—opened at the Starlite Drive-In. Come for a unique screening experience, brimming with nostalgia and local history.
