CHIRP and The Chicago Humanities Festival present the series debut of Hulu’s reimaging of High Fidelity. The original movie took place in Chicago and stars John Cusack. The remake moves the story to Brooklyn and features Zoë Kravitz as the main character whose taste in music far exceeds their luck in love.
This exclusive screening of the series’ first two episodes will be followed by Q&A with cast member Da’Vine Joy Randolph and local radio host and stand-up comedian Jill Hopkins. The event is from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Click here to get more info and buy tickets.

Tonight at the Music Box Theat re holds a very scpecial screening presented by the Chicago Film Society and CHIRP Radio: the 1979 bloxsploitation classic Disco Godfather.
Starring Dolemite legend Rudy Rae Moore (who also produced) and Carol Speed, the film is the story of a retired cop who runs a discoteque and must defend his neighborhood from a local PCP dealer. Featuring the urban DIY aestetic of its genre along with a killer soundtrack, the movie is a glimpse into an earlier, simpler time where dancing, roller skating, and "puttin' your weight on it" ruled.
The Music Box is located at 3733 N Southport Ave 60613. Showtime is 7:00pm. Buy tickets here.
