One of the Music Box Theatre’s most reliably entertaining annual events is Music Box of Horrors, a 24-hour marathon of gore, monsters, and jump scares that ensures you won’t be able to fall asleep for another 24 hours afterward. The only thing more frightening than watching nothing but horror films for a full day is sitting in a theater with other people during a pandemic, so the Music Box took a smart programming detour: going old-school and projecting its spookiest screenings at the ChiTown Movies drive-in in Pilsen. From October 1 to Halloween, pay $30 per car for a single screening or, for a sleep-depriving deal, $40 for a double feature; bring more than enough popcorn, since you might spill half of it on your lap.
