Description

THE COTTON CLUB ENCORE 2:30, 7:00 Prohibition, gangsters and virtuoso tap dancing — this is a lavish cinematic ode to the music and drama of Harlem’s famed hot spot, the Cotton Club. Originally released in 1984, director Francis Ford Coppola’s glittering spectacle has been reshaped into his intended version, restoring several legendary musical numbers and better showcasing the film’s unparalleled cast, which includes Richard Gere, Diane Lane, Gregory Hines, Lonette McKee, Bob Hoskins, Fred Gwynne, Gwen Verdon, Nicolas Cage, and Laurence Fishburne. (1984/2019, 139 min, DCP) + GOLD DIGGERS OF 1933 5:05 A strapped-for-cash Broadway revue gets a timely rescue from a young backer (Dick Powell) who’s awash in talent as well as funds...but the cast (Ruby Keeler, Joan Blondell, Aline McMahon, and Ginger Rogers) have their questions about his motives. Choreographer Busby Berkeley pulled out all the stops for the classic musical numbers. (1933, 97 min, 35mm)
