Here’s a chance you don’t get every day: The Dissolve and Pitchfork will be hosting an intimate screening of Richard Linklater’s 12-years-in-the-making Boyhood on July 15 at Chicago’s beautiful Music Box Theatre. Not incentive enough? Linklater will also be on hand after the film for a Q&A session co-hosted by Pitchfork editor Mark Richardson and The Dissolve editor Scott Tobias. The evening is made possible by IFC Films, which will be distributing the film, and Nonesuch Records, which will be releasing a soundtrack album that includes tracks from Jeff Tweedy, Yo La Tengo, Arcade Fire, and more.
Tickets are extremely limited. (It’s in the Music Box’s smaller house, and if you know the theater, you know what that means.) Like childhood, the moment in which they’ll be available will pass before you know it. And speaking of time passing: This screening coincides, give or take a week, with the one-year anniversary of The Dissolve’s launch. The Dissolve staff will be on hand and hanging out both before and after the screening, so please introduce yourself and hang out with us as we celebrate this landmark the only way we know how: by watching a movie.
If you’re interested, send an email to RSVP@pitchfork.com with your name and the name of your guest (if you’re bringing a guest). We’ll be distributing tickets strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.
