Stormy Weather: dir Andrew L Stone (1943)
1 June @ 4.00 pm - 5.30 pmFree
Newly restored print of the groundbreaking musical with an all-African-American cast, perhaps never matched for sheer brilliance. Bill “Bojangles” Robinson stars as a World War I veteran who hopes to make it big as a dancer and win the heart of singer Selina Rogers (Lena Horne), the background for some 20 dazzling musical numbers including Fats Waller’s Ain’t Misbehavin and Lena Horne singing the classic title tune. The eye-popping Jumpin’ Jive dance sequence by the amazing Nicholas Brothers was described by Fred Astaire as the greatest movie musical number he’d ever seen. A Cinema Space presentation.
