Chicago, win free tickets to more midnight madness at the Music Box


We’ve been living in the kind of high-tech future that ’80s movies warned us about for while now, and since this is all becoming increasingly horrifying, there’s no better way to celebrate our ridiculous modern world than by partaking in a screening of the 1990 techno-horror classic Hardware—a film that mirrors our reality in a lot of scary ways, assuming you’re extremely paranoid about government-sanctioned robot assassins.

Chicago’s Music Box theater (in association with the Chicago Film Society and Odd Obsession Movies) is screening director Richard Stanley’s personal 35mm print of Hardware this week on February 10 and 11 at midnight, and we’re offering two pairs of free tickets to a couple of lucky readers. To win, just send an email to avcontests@theonion.com with the subject line “Hardware.” We’ll draw winners tomorrow, Thursday, February 9, handing out two pairs of tickets that’ll be good for the midnight shows on the nights of either February 10 or 11. You should arrive early, though, as The Music Box will be spinning ‘80s industrial music in the lounge starting at 11:00, with a giveaway for early birds at 11:30.
