TOP HAT

Friday, October 17 • 8pm

Goldsmith Family Cinema

FREE!

Join us for an old-fashioned night at the movies: a 35mm screening of the 1935 Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers picture TOP HAT, preceded by a newsreel, short, and cartoon from the era -- just like it would have been seen in its original release.

The most successful of the Astaire-Rogers films, TOP HAT sees the two singing and dancing, flirting and bickering, as comedic and romantic mix-ups take them from London to an exquisite Art Deco rendering of Venice (as only Hollywood could build it). The score boasts a wealth of hummable Irving Berlin favorites, including "Cheek to Cheek" and "Isn't This a Lovely Day (To Be Caught in the Rain)."
