On Saturday, November 5, 2016, Lana Wachowski, co-creator of The Matrix franchise and the hit Netflix series Sense8, Karin Winslow and Chicago House’s Trans Advisory Council will host the third annual TransReelization, a celebration of transgender film. Thanks to the generosity demonstrated at last year’s event, we have expanded TransReelization into two events. The Music Box Marathon is an afternoon trans-film fest at The Music Box Theater that will include a panel discussion with cast members of Sense8. Behind the Sense is an exclusive reception at the Wachowski’s Kinowerks Studios, where guests will enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a special presentation by Lana and the Sense8 cast and films in Kinowerk’s state-of-the-art movie theater. Proceeds from TransReelization benefit Chicago House’s TransLife Center, which provides comprehensive programming and support to transgender individuals.

TransReelization: A Music Box Marathon will be held at the Music Box Theatre (3733 N. Southport Ave, Chicago) from 2-4 pm. General Admission tickets are $25/person; VIP tickets are $50/person. Purchase tickets: Music Box Marathon

TransReelization: Behind the Sense will be held at Kinowerks Studios (5645 N Ravenswood Ave, Chicago) from 6-9 pm. Tickets are $500/person. Purchase tickets: Behind the Sense
