Chicago, IL — The holiday season moves into high gear on Saturday, Dec. 6, and Sunday, Dec. 7, when the Chicago holiday film Scrooge & Marley returns to the Music Box Theatre, 3733 N.

The swingin’ female a cappella caroling trio The Merry Janes will lead a holiday sing-a-long preceding the Dec. 6 matinee. Read More
