Game of Thrones: The IMAX Experience
Navy Pier IMAX

Proceeds from the Sixth Annual Revel Bowl will benefit Oakley Square, a low-income subsidized housing community. General admission tickets are $75. The fun begins at 4:00 pm Sunday at Union Station.

Short Shakespeare! Macbeth
Chicago Shakespeare Theater
800 E. Grand Ave.
