Music Box Supper Club
1148 Main Ave.
Cleveland, OH 44113
The film industry here in Northeast Ohio has become one of the hottest growth industries for the region. The Music Box is proud to partner with the Cleveland Film Commission, and the Cleveland State University School of Film and Media Arts, to present the monthly Film Café. The goal of the Film Café is to offer a fun environment for fans and other film industry pros to learn more about filmmaking from each other. Each month, a Film Pro will dissect a specific topic, and kick-off a conversation for the audience to discuss and contribute their ideas.
After a short break, films from local filmmakers will also be shown, curated by West10G Productions and Emerge Microcinema! The event will then morph into a networking session where the industry can catch-up on each other’s projects.
The events are free to attend, but seating reservations are encouraged, especially for dining before the talk.

The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
