Cabaret

Saturday, October 18, 2014, 7:30pm
Cabaret is a stylish, socially conscious classic musical film directed by Bob Fosse and starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Grey. The film which is based on the 1966 Broadway musical by Kander and Ebb (revival currently running), uses the decadent and vulgar cabaret as a mirror image of German society sliding toward the Nazis, and this intertwining of entertainment with social history marked a new step forward for the movie musical. Cabaret still holds the record for most Academy Award wins in a single year with eight awards, including Best Director (Fosse), Best Actress (Minnelli) and Best Supporting Actor (Grey). Rated PG

An additional showing of this film will be held on Monday, October 20, 2014 at 7:00pm
at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights, 37-06 77th Street, Jackson Heights, NY 11372


Mary Poppins

Mary Poppins is a musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney, with songs written and composed by the Sherman Brothers. The film, which combines live-action and animation, stars Julie Andrews in the starring role as a magical nanny who visits a dysfunctional family in London that employs her unique brand of lifestyle to improve the family’s dynamic. Dick Van Dyke, David Tomlinson and Glynis Johns are featured in supporting roles. A lavish modern fairy tale celebrated for its amazing special effects, catchy songs, and Julie Andrews's legendary performance, this presentation is great for the whole family! Rated G

Gypsy!

Saturday, March 14, 2015, 7:30pm
With songs written by Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne, Gypsy centers on the antics of Mama Rose (here played by Rosalind Russell), the Stage Mother from Hell who prods and pushes her daughters June and Louise into a vaudeville career. Willful, resourceful, domineering Rose will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. She drags her young, blonde and beautiful daughter June and her shy, awkward, and decidedly less-talented older sister Louise around the country in an effort to get them noticed, and with the assistance of agent Herbie Sommers, she manages to secure them bookings on the prestigious Orpheum Circuit. Along with Rosalind Russell, the film stars Natalie Wood, Karl Malden and Ann Jillian. Unrated
