CLASSIC MOVIE MUSICAL SERIES – SHOW BOAT (1951)
Saturday, October 14, 2 p.m.
Handley Regional Library Auditorium (100 W. Piccadilly St., Winchester)
Free & Open to the Public
Magic Lantern, Handley Regional Library and the Friends of HRL are launching a new, quarterly film series honoring the great American movie musicals of the mid-20th century. First up is “Show Boat,” based on the path breaking Jerome Kern/Oscar Hammerstein II musical play. Boasting an all-star cast, the film is romantic — the love story of the raffish gambler, Gaylord Ravenal, and the innocent ingénue, Magnolia Hawks – but also touches on racial discrimination in the post-Civil War South. Its glorious score includes such standards as “Make Believe,” “Old Man River,” “Can’t Stop Lovin’ ‘Dat Man of Mine,” “Bill,” and “You Are Love.”
Future Classic Movie Musical screenings will be on February 10 and April 14, 2018
