(89 min) The Tony Award-winning play was made into this archetypal backstage musical, with choreography by the legendary Busby Berkeley. Listed on countless ‘Best Film’ and ‘Best Musical’ lists, 42nd Street is as lively a film as old Hollywood ever released, with five major set pieces (three of which take up the film’s final half hour).
Take a trip back in time with a short sing-a-long with David at the Wurlitzer and our historic glass slides as your guide before both screenings! Chuck Koplinski will not be leading a discussion after this film, but you can catch him at our next in the News-Gazette Film Series!
2015-2016 NEWS-GAZETTE FILM SERIES
Join us one Saturday each month as we screen the most beloved classic films of all time. Virginia Theatre organist David Schroeder performs on the Virginia’s historic Wurlitzer Pipe Organ at most News- Gazette screenings, and film critic Chuck Koplinski leads discussions after all of our evening screenings. NEW this year: before each 7pm News-Gazette film, take a trip back in time with a short sing-a-long with David at the Wurlitzer and our historic glass slides as your guide! The Virginia Theatre houses one of the largest collections in the country of these unique glass slides, each set printed with the lyrics to a classic tune from days gone by. Warm up your pipes and bring the whole family!
