In Pool Party, catch the doubly surprising story of a swimming pool—the size of a football field in New York City built during the Depression and abandoned for almost 25 years—that’s become the most significant indie music venue since CBGB’s.

And in Detroit Wild City, locals hypothesize the future of Detroit—and ultimately all urban ‘settlements’.

33 Films will fill the roster—ranging in length from three minutes to 93 minutes—and each has been curated into 15 programs. Tickets will be sold by the program with each program including 1-4 films of varying lengths and running approximately 90 minutes.

Where: Music Box Theatre, Chicago
When: Friday, December 16-24, 2011

For the past 27 years, holiday revelers have come to the vintage Music Box theater to watch two classic films of the season—‘White Christmas’ and ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’.

What makes the evening a holiday tradition is when Santa Claus, accompanied by the theater organist, leads a sing-along of the most cherished Christmas carols before the screening of each film.

In case you never knew the words to Auld Lang Syne, just follow the “bouncing ball” as the lyrics are projected onto the screen and enjoy!

Turn on the spotlights, roll out the red carpet…the Academy Awards only take place in Hollywood.

Sunday night the most coveted trophies in town will be awarded for the 83rd time. What started as a small affair in 1929—a banquet at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel—has become one of the most watched events in the world. That year about 275 guests paid $5.00 to attend—but this year approximately 40 million in over 200 countries are expected to tune in to the broadcast.

Congratulations and good luck to all of the nominees!

Thanks to whitney, west hollywood sales, for this window display.
