UPCOMING EVENTS

The Fifth Element!

November 14, 2017
@North Bar

Down In Front continues looking to the future with yet another sci-fi movie with lots of jokes about its futuristic technology, though nothing as hilarious as the three seashells.  Bruce Willis plays... well, basically Bruce Willis, as a cab driver in the future who just happens to be a recently-retired, highly-decorated military operative of some sort, making him the perfect person for Milla Jovovitch, wearing the latest in ACE Bandage fashion, to fall into the back of his cab completely at random so he can help her get to a space casino and take some stones out of a blue alien's tummy.  If you haven't seen it, I'm pretty sure I lost you at the word "future."

We'll be at Chicago's most enthusiastic comedy destination, @North Bar. They serve a great selection of booze, you can get a pizza there, and you're allowed to bring your own food - there are lots of great options in the Wicker Park area! Paid street parking ends at 10, so if you pay at 8 you'll be covered as long as you want to stay. The venue is accessible via the 8 and 72 bus routes, and is nearboy both the Damen and Division Blue Line stops. As always, Down In Front is a free show with a recommended donation of $5 per person.

See you Down In Front for Demolition Man on October 10. Please no talking during the movie. That's our job.

ABOUT

Down in Front is a small collective of film buffs, comedians, and all-around weirdos that just can’t help talking through the movie - but you’ll actually love it coming from us. We sort through hundreds of films and present our favorite targets to you with live running commentary, packed with jokes. There’s nothing too obscure, nor too classic for our smart-asses to show you and create a great night of comedy. Come out to a show and see for yourself. Please no talking during the movie - that’s our job!
