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.
Host Blake Goble kicks off this week’s episode with a review of the soundtrack for Black Mass, the Johnny Depp-starring biopic about mob boss Whitey Bulger. Then, we chat with the film’s composer, Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL, about how his creative process for the soundtrack, the most intriguing part about the film, and why he’s slowly phasing out the name Junkie XL when credited on film scores.
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.
