From the Music Box Theatre website:
In impatient anticipation for Wes Anderson’s latest wonder, we have arranged to screen all of Mr Anderson’s previous feature films to date!
From his irreverent debut Bottle Rocket to Moonrise Kingdom, his most assured work to date, Wes Anderson’s cinematic predilections are unmistakable. His rigorously arranged compositions and expressive use of color, all in service of his literary method of storytelling, signal a filmmaker who has risen to an equal rank with his auteurist idols. We are taking a weeklong look at one of the most unique voices in contemporary American cinema – all from 35mm film prints!
Schedule (all times to be announced):
- Bottle Rocket (1996): Friday, February 28
- Rushmore (1998): Friday, February 28
- The Royal Tenenbaums (2001): Saturday, March 1
- The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004): Saturday, March 1
- The Darjeeling Limited (2007): Saturday, March 1
- Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009): Sunday, March 2

B-Fest is a 24-hour marathon of b-movies held by A&O Productions each year in January at Northwestern University's Norris University Center McCormick Auditorium in Evanston, Illinois.
B-Fest has been likened to an audience-participation version of an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000; viewers are encouraged to voice their opinions of onscreen events, especially if such comments provide entertainment for the other festival attendees. Additional staples of B-Fest gatherings are the midnight screening of Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space, door prizes from our sponsors, the Northwestern B-Fest Players (who occasionally mount the stage to bring their own theatrical spin to the proceedings), and of course, the sing-along version of The Wizard of Speed and Time.
