42nd Street (1933) – 1pm

Directed by: Lloyd Bacon
Starring: Warner Baxter, Bebe Daniels, Ginger Rogers

A seasoned director puts on what may be his last Broadway show but, at the last moment, a naive newcomer steps in to replace the star. An early career example of Busby Berkeley’s highly recognisable ensemble choreography that came to define the musicals of the golden era.

The Gang’s All Here (1943) – 2.45pm

Soldier Andy Mason, on leave from the army, romances showgirl Eadie Allen overnight to such effect that she’s starry-eyed when he leaves next morning for active duty in the Pacific. Only trouble is, he gave her the assumed name of Casey. Andy’s eventual return with a medal is celebrated by his rich father with a benefit show featuring Eadie’s show troupe, at which she’s sure to learn his true identity…and meet Vivian, his ‘family-arrangement’ fiancée. Some of the finest song and dance numbers of the era including Carmen Miranda’s Lady With The Tutti Frutti Hat.

 

Part of  Let’s Face The Music (January 17 to 19)…  A special movie weekender celebrating the greatest Hollywood musical choreographers of the 1930s. Featuring the work of Busby Berkeley, Seymour Felix, Dave Gould and Hermes Pan. With immersive matinees, midnight martinis …and dance.
