Description

THE ROARING TWENTIES 6:00 Prohibition was to organized crime what paraffin is to a naked flame. Raoul Walsh’s gritty gangster epic is a condemnation of a dirty decade of unemployment, corruption and violence, starring Jimmy Cagney as the good citizen turned bootlegger and Humphrey Bogart his tough-guy nemesis. (1939, 106 min, digital) + THE COTTON CLUB ENCORE 8:00 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)
