“Purple! Your aura is purple!” We love the movie Almost Famous, mostly because Kate Hudson is a goddess, but also, the movie is incredible. If you haven’t had the opportunity to view this classic film, head to PBR movie night at Boiler Room in Logan Square for a chill Sunday night. Even if you have seen the flick, you know it is worth your time to see again. For more information, click here. The Boiler Room, 2210 N. California Ave., Chicago, IL.
