Martin Scorsese stated, “Film in the 20th century, it’s the American art form, like jazz.”
The Palm Court, long famed for introducing the nation’s next big jazz artist, will now bring back America’s most beloved entertainment: motion picture classics from the early to mid 20th century. Names that resonate through generations like Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock, and Audrey Hepburn will once again return to Chicago for Movie Mondays at The Drake Hotel. Fall back in time with a 40’s themed cocktail while gazing at Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in “His Girl Friday” January 13th or sip on a gin sour while watching Frank Capra’s suspense filled “Meet John Doe” with Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck.
Films will be shown biweekly, the second and fourth Monday of every month. Please visit our entertainment page for a full schedule. Admission is always free, and complimentary popcorn will be served.
