Episode 59: Ryan Oestreich (Manager of the Music Box) + Cinepocalypse 2018

One of the greatest joys to experience in the fine city of Chicago is sitting down to watch a screening of a classic film at The Music Box Theater.  It has been my favorite movie theater for quite some time and when the opportunity came to talk to the general manager of this theater, I could not have been more thrilled.  Ryan Oestreich has a long history with the film industry, particularly film festival programming and theater management.  He is now able to combine both of his passions alongside Josh Goldbloom, to put together a film festival that I can't wait to cover this summer:  The Cinepocalypse! 

Ryan and I briefly cover his past experience and then we launch into our endless excitement for the many films and special events happening from June 21st to the 28th.  You can listen to us passionately talk about some of the titles we're looking forward to of course, but also be sure to visit the links below to buy a festival badge or tickets to any number of screenings coming up in about a month.  Ryan is a hard-working, energetic guest with a lot to contribute so even if you're not in the Chicagoland area and have no familiarity with the Music Box, I have no doubt that as a movie fanatic, you'll find a lot to enjoy throughout our conversation.
