Theater Screenings Overview - Welcome back!

Reeling 2021 is thrilled to invite audiences to enjoy in-person theater screenings again at the Music Box Theater (3733 N Southport Ave) for Opening Night and at the Landmark Theater (2828 N Clark St) for all other in-person festival showtimes.

Tickets may be purchased online in advance or at the theater the day-of. You will receive an email confirmation with a unique QR code for the showtime purchased. Bring a printed or electronic copy of this order confirmation with the QR code to the theater to be scanned for entry.

Important Update: As of August 30th, we have decided to update our Covid-19 policy to require proof of full vaccination or a negative Covid-19 PCR test result to attend all screenings and events at the Music Box or Landmark Theater. Full vaccination means two weeks after the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna or single dose of Johnson & Johnson. Regardless of vaccination status, masks will be required to enter festival theaters and must remain on except when actively eating or drinking in your seat. 

Please visit our Tickets & Passes page for ticketing details and the full Covid-19 policy.
