Calling all film lovers and music buffs! Welcome to another edition of Music at the Movies. We’re coming to you from our brand new home at the historic Music Box Theatre in Chicago, where you can catch some of the best independent, foreign, and classic films all year round.
Today we bring you a special installment of the show as host Blake Goble chats with Academy Award-nominated composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. The Icelandic native, who earned accolade for his work on The Theory of Everything, discusses his history as a composer and how he got his start in Hollywood. He also discusses the process behind his latest score for Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario, the scores and music he’ll be working on in 2016, and whether or not he’s working with Villeneuve on the upcoming remake of Blade Runner.
Please present your ticket to the usher, purchase all your concessions, and grab a seat because the show is about to start! And make sure to head to the Music Box website to check out showtimes, upcoming special events, and much more.
