Asbury Park: Riot Redemption Rock 'n Roll
May 22
Asbury Park: Riot Redemption Rock 'n Roll(2019)
"Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock n Roll" tells the story of the long troubled town of Asbury Park, and how the power of music can unite a divided community. A once storied seaside resort, Asbury Park erupted in flames during a summer of civil unrest, crippling the town for the next 45 years and reducing it to a state of urban blight. A town literally divided by a set of railroad tracks, the riot destroyed the fabled Westside jazz and blues scene, but from the flames of the burning city emerged the iconic Jersey sound. "Asbury Park" returns Asbury sons Steven Van Zandt, Southside Johnny Lyon and Bruce Springsteen to the legendary Upstage, the psychedelic after hours club where they got their start, featuring never before seen interviews and performances.

The Seven Year Itch(2019)
We’re celebrating Marilyn Monroe’s 93rd Birthday with a special showing of THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH, which immortalized the iconic star with her dress blowing up above a subway vent.

The Seven Year Itch is still as sexy, funny and charming today as it was when it was released over 60 years ago. Director Billy Wilder was at the top of his game with this sophisticated yet utterly farcical romantic comedy fantasy that explores a heretofore faithfully married man’s feelings (the “seven year itch” refers to the supposed “timely” urge towards matrimonial infidelity) about his gorgeous neighbour (Marilyn Monroe, in one of the most iconic bombshell performances ever put to celluloid). In the midst of a summer heat wave, New Yorker Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell, who also played the part on Broadway) ships his wife, Helen (Evelyn Keyes), and their son off to Maine for vacation. Left alone to work back in Manhattan, he encounters a gorgeous blonde model who has moved into the apartment upstairs, and becomes immediately infatuated. While pondering an affair, Richard dreams of his beautiful new neighbor — but will his fantasies about her become a reality?

Royal Opera House: Faust, The
June 2
The Royal Opera House: Faust(2019)
Gounod's most popular opera returns in David McVicar's stunning Parisian production, with singers including Michael Fabiano, Diana Damrau and Erwin Schrott.
Disillusioned with life, the aged philosopher Faust calls upon Satan to help him. The devil Méphistophélès appears and strikes a bargain with the philosopher: he will give him youth and the love of the beautiful Marguerite, if Faust will hand over his soul. Faust agrees, and Méphistophélès arranges matters so that Marguerite loses interest in her suitor Siébel and becomes infatuated with Faust.
Gounod's Faust (1859) was one of the world's most popular operas from the 1860s to World War II, and remains a core repertory work. The story, adapted by Gounod's librettists Jules Barbier and Michel Carré from Carré's play Faust et Marguerite, is based on Part I of Goethe's epic poem Faust, which was a major inspiration for many composers during the 19th century and beyond. Gounod added a ballet to Act V when Faust received its first Paris Opéra staging in 1869.

David McVicar's wonderfully theatrical production draws insightful parallels between Faust and Gounod, a composer torn between piety and worldly and romantic success. Sets and costumes by Charles Edwards and Brigitte Reiffenstuel pay tribute to the art and architecture of 1870s Paris, and include a colourful Cabaret d'Enfer, a run-down tenement block and re-creations of a box from the Paris Opéra and the organ loft of Notre-Dame. The variety of settings mirrors the variety in Gounod's score, highlights of which include Méphistophélès's demonic aria 'Le veau d'or', Marguerite's dazzling coloratura Jewel Song, the Act IV Soldiers' Chorus and Act V's impassioned trio as Marguerite struggles to achieve salvation.
Please be advised ROH: Faust contains brief sexual violence, and drug misuse

42nd Street - The Musical(2019)
One of Broadway's most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street, comes to the big screen in the largest ever production of the show. The musical 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 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!

Exhibition on Screen: Van Gogh & Japan
June 9 & 12
Exhibition on Screen: Van Gogh & Japan(2019)
"I envy the Japanese" Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo. In the exhibition on which this film is based - VAN GOGH & JAPAN at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam - one can see why. Though Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art. One cannot understand Van Gogh without understanding how Japanese art arrived in Paris in the middle of the 19th century and the profound impact it had on artists like Monet, Degas and, above all, Van Gogh.

Visiting the new galleries of Japanese art in Paris and then creating his own image of Japan - through in-depth research, print collecting and detailed discussions with other artists - Van Gogh's encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction. After leaving Paris for the south of France - to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find - the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors. In this overlooked story of Van Gogh's art we see just how important his study of Japan was.

The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.

Deconstructing the Beatles: Abbey Road, Side 1
June 13 & 15
Deconstructing the Beatles: Abbey Road, Side 1(2019)
The Beatles’ Abbey Road is a masterpiece filled with classic Beatles songs, such as “Come Together,” “Something,” and “Here Comes the Sun.” George Martin told the Beatles to think “symphonically,” and they responded by creating the remarkable side two song suite.

Abbey Road was the last time that the Beatles recorded together at EMI Studios — soon-to-be-christened Abbey Road Studios after the album’s release. Despite the bittersweet atmosphere that surrounded the recording sessions, The Beatles’ outstanding songs and performances together with George Martin’s orchestrations produced an album that continues to be regarded as one of the best albums ever created.

In Deconstructing Abbey Road, Beatleologist Scott Freiman has created one of his most in-depth “deconstructions.” Freiman takes the audience on a journey track-by-track explaining the inspiration for the songs and their evolution in the studio.

Stagecoach (1939)
June 15 & 16
Stagecoach (1939)(2019)
80 years ago, the Western genre was forever changed by its greatest pioneer, the legendary John Ford. At a time when audiences were becoming bored with the genre recycling the same tired plots and story structures, Ford completely revitalized the Western with this single film. Stagecoach was a game changer. It took the previously well-worn tropes and expectations of the genre and flipped them on their head. Where outlaws used to be heinous and evil, in Stagecoach they are good, kindhearted, and portrayed by an up and coming prop-man turned actor by the name of Marion Morrison (that's John Wayne to you Western fans.)

Stagecoach also reinvigorated the genre with a profound sense of identity, introducing the world to Ford's beloved Monument Valley, the locations of which are now synonymous with the legacy of the Western. It became Ford's favorite place in the world, using it again for many other Western classics including My Darling Clementine, Fort Apache, and his opus, The Searchers. All of these films have had an incredible influence on modern directors, but Stagecoach in particular had a particular impact on the craft of filmmaking itself. Stagecoach exhibits some of the earliest instances of ceilinged sets, which is typically credited instead to Citizen Kane. Orson Welles actually studied Stagecoach when in preparations for his first film, citing it as: "my movie textbook… I wanted to learn how to make movies, and that’s such a classically perfect one.”

It cannot be overstated how important Stagecoach is, not only in the context of reestablishing the importance of the Western genre, but in the broader context of film as a whole. A more in-depth look at its legacy and influence can be found here. Today, on it's 80th anniversary, let us take some time to appreciate this fantastic film from one of Hollywood's greatest filmmakers. What are your own thoughts and ideas about Ford's masterfully revolutionary Western classic?

The Royal Ballet: Romeo and Juliet(2019)
Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers encounter passion and tragedy in Kenneth MacMillan's 20th-century ballet masterpiece.
Romeo and Juliet fall passionately in love, but their families are caught up in a deadly feud. They marry in secret, but tragic circumstances lead Romeo to fight and kill Juliet's cousin Tybalt. As punishment, he is banished from the city.
Kenneth MacMillan's passionate choreography for Romeo and Juliet shows The Royal Ballet at its dramatic finest. Sergey Prokofiev's iconic score provides the basis for the ballet's romantic pas de deux and vibrant crowd scenes, while 16th-century Verona is created by Nicholas Georgiadis's magnificent designs.

In 1965, MacMillan's Romeo and Juliet was given its premiere at Covent Garden by The Royal Ballet and was an immediate success: the first night was met with rapturous applause, which lasted for 40 minutes, and an incredible 43 curtain calls. The title roles were danced by Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn, although the ballet had been created on Christopher Gable and Lynn Seymour. It has been performed by The Royal Ballet more than four hundred times since, as well as touring the world, and has become a true classic of the 20th-century ballet repertory.
