Cineplex Entertainment and BY Experience are excited to bring WBEZ Chicago's hit radio show This American Life back to select movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, May 10. Host Ira Glass and popular contributors present stories, plus things you could never do on the radio - including dance, animation, video and more. Broadcast live from the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in New York City, the event will feature stories by David Sedaris, David Rakoff, Glynn Washington and Tig Notaro, a new short film by Mike Birbiglia, dance by Monica Bill Barnes & Company, and music by the band OK Go. Attendees will be able to play along with OK Go on a special, free mobile app created for the event!
Updated showtimes are available for online ticket purchase starting Tuesday evenings for the upcoming playweek (Friday – Thursday).
*A No Passes restriction may apply to select movies and events. You cannot redeem passes but you may use a Gift Card, Night Out, or Admit One coupon for admission.
