BLUES IN THE NIGHT
First show: June 02
Hollywood’s great noir musical — a deep-dish epic of love, death, and passion — brilliantly conceived and stunningly rendered. An on-the-bum jazz band jams its way to fame and fortune while sidestepping the temptations of the high life and the murderous machinations of a desperate gangster. The film’s full-bodied expressionistic photography and the pulsating music of the Jimmie Lunceford and Will Osborne orchestras mark this as a major rediscovery! The once-in-a-lifetime cast includes: Priscilla Lane, Richard Whorf, Betty Field, Jack Carson, Lloyd Nolan, Wallace Ford, Elia Kazan, Billy Halop, and Howard DaSilva. Photographed by Ernest Haller. Written by Robert Rossen. Directed by Anatole Litvak. In B&W. DIGITAL. 88 mins. 1941. FRI at 8:00 only!
