CHICAGO — Logan Theatre is throwing a David Bowie party — and costumes are heavily encouraged.
The theater is showing the famous 1986 Bowie flick “Labyrinth” at 11 p.m. May 24. It plans to start off the night with a party, though, and it wants attendees to dress as Bowie or in Bowie-inspired looks.
Bowie, who died in 2016, was famous as a musician and actor for his flamboyant style, which changed greatly throughout his decades of work. The theater said it’s encouraging participants to dress in any of “Bowie’s eras, aesthetics and styles of his entourage.” The three best-dressed people will win prizes.
The winner will get a pair of Pitchfork tickets, while the person in second place will get a $50 Logan Theatre gift card and the third-place winner will get a $25 Logan Theatre gift card.
The party is free, but tickets to the “Labyrinth” screening are $9 per person and are available online. The party runs 8-11 p.m. and the screening starts 11 p.m. at the theater, 2646 N. Milwaukee Ave.
