Batman 1989 - 35th Anniversary Concert
Saturday April 13, 2024

Celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Warner Bros. Pictures’ iconic 1989 DC Superhero film, “Batman,” live in concert! The Dark Knight, defender of law and order in Gotham City, treads the shadow zone between right and wrong, fighting with only his skill in martial arts and his keenly honed mind to defend the innocent and to purge the memory of his parents’ brutal murder – always keeping his true identity as millionaire philanthropist Bruce Wayne a closely guarded secret. The film will be accompanied by a live orchestra, conducted by James Olmstead, providing the perfect opportunity to revisit a classic fan-favorite film based on one of the world’s most popular DC comic characters, or to introduce it to a new audience. Guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite DC Superhero. Presented by MGP Live  Click here for more information about tickets and subscriptions to the Auditorium Philms Concert Series.

An Evening with Alan Ruck and Screening of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Thursday May 2, 2024

The Auditorium Theatre presents a special showing of the John Hughes classic FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF featuring a Q&A with star Alan Ruck (Cameron Frye)! "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." No, it was not Confucius that said that. It was that sage of sages, Ferris Bueller, as played (unforgettably, most would argue) by Matthew Broderick. Sandwiched in between PRETTY IN PINK and SOME KIND OF WONDERFUL, screenwriter John Hughes told a different kind of high school story in FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF, which became the biggest box office hit of his directorial career, grossing just over $70 million in 1986 (that was more than the combined takes of THE BREAKFAST CLUB and WEIRD SCIENCE, his two previous films). Instead of focusing on teenage cliques or young lovers from two different worlds, Hughes instead turned his attention to something nearly everyone does at one time or another: playing hooky. And nobody played it better than Ferris. A limited number of VIP tickets are available that include the best seats in the house along with a post-show photo opportunity with Alan Ruck.

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther in Concert
Saturday June 22, 2024 - Sunday June 23, 2024

After an electric sold-out debut in 2022, Chicago Philharmonic brings back Marvel Studios' Black Panther in Concert. In 2018, Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” quickly became a global sensation and cultural phenomenon, showing a new dimension of what SuperHero films could be. Rolling Stone raved, “The film lights up the screen with a full-throttle blast of action and fun. That’s to be expected. But what sneaks up and floors you is the film’s racial conscience and profound, astonishing beauty.”   Relive the excitement of T’Challa becoming king and battling Killmonger all while the “one of the country’s finest symphonic orchestras” (Chicago Tribune) performs Ludwig Göransson’s Oscar® and Grammy®-winning score live to picture.   Joining the orchestra for the concert is Massamba Diop, the revered Senegalese tama drummer who recorded and co-created parts of the movie score with composer Göransson.  Click here for more information about tickets and subscriptions to the Auditorium Philms Concert Series.
