RETROSPECT WEEKEND PRESENTS FUNNY FACE
Come dressed in your vintage best to Chicago's oldest movie house THE MUSIC BOX THEATRE for an exclusive showing of the 1957 Stanley Donnen directed FUNNY FACE! A night at the movies with your friends from the Randolph Street Market and RETROSPECT vintage modern fashion will be just what the style doctor ordered!
The evening will open with a brief panel discussion led by noted and witty Chicago fashion historian Nena Ivon and friends. FUNNY FACE features Fred Astaire as fashion photographer Dick Avery, who is sent out by his female boss Maggie Prescott (Kay Thompson) to find a "new face". It doesn't take Dick long to discover Jo (Audrey Hepburn), an owlish Greenwich Village bookstore clerk. Dick whisks the wide-eyed girl off to Paris and with the help of an extensive wardrobe by Hubert de Givenchy transforms Jo from waif to supermodel. A classic for all lovers of movies and fashion! And following the movie, join us in the cafe for further discussion, drinks and coffee available for purchase. Hope you can join your new and old friends at this raucus and fun evening!!
