An extension for Music Box Theatre enthusiasts.
UPDATE (2022-09-03): This update re-introduces 'Add to Calendar' support for most pages to the new redesign. Additional 'Add to Calendar' support for the new summary and calendar pages will hopefully be forthcoming.
I love Chicago's Music Box Theatre. It's a gorgeous venue with great staff, and I've been attending screenings there for more years than I'll publicly admit to. However, as they've added more festivals to their schedule, I've found myself wishing the website had a few more options to ease planning one's filmgoing itinerary. Consequently, this extension adds the following features to their website:
- Allows you to add a future showtime to your Google Calendar
(A recent redesign made some of this extension's prior features unnecessary.)
PLEASE NOTE: Apart from being a paying Music Box Member, I have no affiliation with the Music Box Theatre or Music Box Films.
