We here at Flick Lit are so sad to hear of the passing of the great Miss Sharon Jones from pancreatic cancer. We often featured her music in our pre-show playlist. We loved her original soul music with the Dap Kings. She always did great covers, too. Here's the trailer to a documentary film about her life. She went from working as a corrections officer at Rikers Island to being labeled the "female James Brown" .... RIP, Miss Sharon Jones.

Don't even think of missing tomorrow's fierce Love/Hate Debate on ANNIE HALL (1977) at our final show.

Two powerful storytellers (Eileen Tull and Suzy Kahn Weinberg) square off on this iconic Woody Allen film. Does it deserve to be beloved? Or does it deserve to be be-loathed? It's up to you, the exceptionally magnificent audience, to decide.

There are only a handful of tickets left, so get 'em now.

Happy Friday, Flick Literati! Because we know you love good storytelling, we want to do our small part to help promote it for years to come. We're talkin' about turning kids into writers. That's why proceeds from Tuesday night's show (11/15; 8pm) will go to 826CHI. We'll tell you more about this organization at the show (including how you can get involved). Suffice to say it is basically a ninja training center located behind the storefront of an inconspicuous-looking secret agent supply company. But don't be fooled. Behind those walls, young warriors are sharpening their words and imagination to be used for GOOD against E-V-I-L.

Read more about this superfly enterprise here. And get your tickets for Tuesday night NOW:

826CHI is a nonprofit tutoring & writing center, located at 1276 N Milwaukee Ave in Chicago.

Here's the latest Friday Film Wrecks from Flick Lit alum Nathalie Lagerfeld. Check it out.

BACK TO THE FUTURE: PART II came out in 1989 and predicted a Chicago Cubs World Series victory in 2015. Cleary the 1994 MLB strike disrupted the space-time continuum, thus resulting in a one-year delay. Just ask Michael J. Fox.

Plenty of movies and TV shows have poked fun at the unlikeliness of a Cubs World Series championship — Rookie of the Year, Parks and Recreation,...

What did Cubs manager Joe Maddon say to his team during that tense rain delay?:

"Now listen to me. This game of baseball is only 1/2 skill. The other 1/2 is something else. Something bigger!" (DAMN YANKEES, 1958)

Congratulations to the Chicago Cubs AND the Cleveland Indians for a series filled with heart.


See you November 15th at the Music Box Lounge. 8pm. You'll be there because you are FULL of heart.
