I took the Brown line to the Southport stop. An easy pleasant stroll about 10 minutes to the theater. You can browse restaurants lining Southport for a meal later.

The Music Box Theatre and 93XRT are proud to present John Lennon’s 70th Birthday Celebration. This multi-media event combines an exclusive screening of the new feature film Nowhere Boy, followed by a Q & A and concert performance featuring the original members of Lennon’s first band, The Quarrymen. 

On Sunday, October 3, the Music Box Theatre will present an exclusive sneak preview of Nowhere Boy, Sam Taylor-Wood’s new film about John Lennon’s teenage years and the start of The Beatles, starring Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) and Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient).

Following the screening, the members of The Quarrymen (“The Band that Became the Beatles”) will participate in a Q&A session about Lennon’s life, as well as perform the same music they made with fellow members John, Paul and George. 

This event is co-presented by 93XRT, and will be hosted by on-air personality and Beatles expert Terri Hemmert.
