Description

SUN FEB 16 *Double Feature* NEW YORK, NEW YORK 2:15, 7:00 Martin Scorsese’s homage to and deconstruction of the classic Hollywood musical casts Liza Minnelli as a 1940s singer whose rocky relationship with Robert De Niro’s temperamental jazz saxophonist sputters as her career ascends. The director channels that Dream Factory feeling through patently artificial soundstage sets and showstopping, movie-within-a-movie musical numbers. (1977, 163 min, archival 35mm print) + THE CLOCK 5:15 Its wartime and young people are rushing into hasty—sometimes unwise— marriages, but not pretty, level-headed Alice. Then she meets Joe, a G.I. on a two-day pass, and falls heart-over level-head in love. Judy Garland and Robert Walker are sweethearts for the ages in this glowing valentine of a movie directed by Vincente Minnelli (who, to add another layer of radiant romance, was about to marry his leading lady.) (1945, 90 min, 35mm)
