Into Great Silence
will be opening at the Music Box Theatre
in Chicago on March 30. Several Shrine members and friends saw it in a one-time screening at the Gene Siskel Film Center on Saturday, and it was excellent. Just don't buy a jumbo soda (or cappuccino or European beer, as it may be at an art house) beforehand, since it's almost 3 hours long and you don't want to miss anything (especially the highly POD Eucharistic procession).
Meanwhile, this week, the Music Box is showing a restored print of Becket
, starring Richard Burton, several times a day. While it's no A Man For All Seasons
, it's an enjoyable, if long, costume drama with a Catholic flair. Worth seeing on the big screen.
