Here’s one for Chicago-based fans of legendary character actor Harry Dean Stanton, who died last month at the age of 91: A chance to see his final film, Lucky, for free during its run at the beautiful, historic Music Box theater. The directorial debut of actor John Carroll Lynch, the film stars Stanton as an aging man slowly coming to terms with his final days. Our own Mike D’Angelo called Lucky an “ideal swan song” for its star’s storied career, writing that, “It takes a great actor to make such potentially heavy material feel liberating rather than oppressive, and Stanton is up to the task.”
You can see Stanton’s work for yourself; all you have to do is head over here and register for the chance to win a free pair of tickets to a showing of the film at the Music Box, courtesy of Magnolia Pictures. The film begins its theatrical run on October 6, but the passes are good for any showing of Lucky (Monday through Thursday screenings only) throughout its time at the theater.
