Kick off your weekend with a special Q&A session with Wes Anderson darling, actor and indie musician Jason Schwartzman. He'll be stopping by the Music Box Theatre to promote his new film Listen Up Phillip, which premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and is gaining buzz as it finally goes into wider release. The evening will be the Chicago release of the film, which explores the life of Phillip, a self-absorbed novelists anxiously awaiting the release of his second book. The film also stars Elizabeth Moss as Phillip's long-suffering girlfriend and Jonathan Pryce as Phillips literary Idol and new mentor.

Movie-goers will have the chance to ask the actor questions at one of two screenings co-hosted by the A.V. Club scheduled for 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. And while we're sure the questions will be focused on his current film and acting experience, this might be a good opportunity to ask when Coconut Records will release their next album.

Tickets are currently still available for both showings.

The Music Box Theatre is located at 3733 N. Southport Ave.
