Missing Indie Cinema?
Chicago's Music Box Theatre Virtually Has You Covered
Oscilloscope Laboratories and Music Box Theatre present the acclaimed, smile-inducing, toe-tapping debut feature from Japanese writer/director Makoto Nagahisa, WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES, which will be available as a Virtual Cinema presentation, beginning Friday, July 10, 2020.
The Virtual Cinema experience was created to assist temporarily closed and gradually reopening independent theaters. By purchasing a “ticket,” you’ll be directly supporting Music Box Theatre, as all revenue is being shared between distributor and exhibitor just as if you bought your ticket at the theater’s box office.

“Explosively ingenious and energetic...A hyper-stylized, hyperactive and hyper-fun movie spectacular.” — Variety
“A rainbow-colored scream into the abyss...One of the most exciting premieres at Sundance 2019.” — New York Magazine
About WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES:
When four young orphans—Hikari, Ikuko, Ishi, and Takemura—first meet, their parents’ bodies are being turned into dust, like fine Parmesan atop a plate of spaghetti Bolognese, and yet none of them can shed a tear. They are like zombies; devoid of all emotion. With no family, no future, no dreams, and no way to move forward, the young teens decide that the first level of this new existence involves salvaging a gaming console, an old electric bass, and a charred wok from their former homes—just enough to start a band and then conquer the world. Tragedy, comedy, music, social criticism, and teenage angst are all subsumed in this eccentric cinematic tsunami.
Pricing & Scheduling:
Rentals are $12, and are good for 72 hours. Your purchase will go toward supporting Music Box Theatre during our gradual reopening.
