A SPECIAL EVENT AT THE CINEMA ART THEATER!
One of Broadway’s most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street comes to the big screen at the Cinema Art Theater from London’s Theatre Royal in a stunning musical production. Set in 1933, 42nd Street tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.
Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of the musical-within-the-musical, Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found (someone like Peggy Sawyer!) [2019, UK, 155 min, Rated: PG]
Filmed in 2018 at London’s Theatre Royal the production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble. This eye-watering extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards (Lullaby of Broadway, We’re in the Money, 42nd Street and more), and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.
Screening times are 1 pm on Mon (Jun 6) and 6:30 pm on Tue (Jun 7). Admission is $18 for members, $20 for future members and $15 for students with an ID & Youth (15 years and younger). Patrons are encouraged to purchase advance tickets online at www.rehobothfilm.com. If seats are available, admission can be purchased at the theater box office beginning 30 minutes prior to each screening.
