Free movies every Monday at Transistor. Credit: Flickr/NightRStar
Transistor Chicago, 3819 N. Lincoln, the eclectic Traders Row shop that still sells quaint little items like “records” and “books” is screening Lucky Man tonight at 8:00 p.m., as part of its weekly BYOB Monday night movie series. Like the headline says in big type, the flicks are free. Oh, and Lucky Man stars Cary Grant, ’nuff said.
Need a little more advance notice because your Mondays are crammed with social events? Here’s the upcoming schedule (all movies are at 8):
- Jan. 23, Black Gold, a documentary that explores the coffee trade. We’re guessing you’re going to feel bad about bringing that latte.
- Jan. 30, Maxwell Street Blues. Another documentary ignored by the multiplexes. This one features the once-thriving blues scene of Chicago’s Maxwell Street.
- February is taken over by guest curator Gene Booth, who harbors an affection for Preston Sturges.
- March is Oscar month. Casablanca!
- April is devoted to films set in Paris.
- May is devoted to films by Woody Allen, except Midnight in Paris, because that should’ve screened in April.
