Once More With Feeling!
In March, FACT celebrates the musical genre with a very special alternative musical film series...
22 February 2011These off-kilter musicals range from the rarely seen Hollywood fare to eccentric Bollywood melodrama. Fancy dress and singing along encouraged!
We kick off the season on 09 March with Funny Girl, the classic 1964 Broadway musical that helped cement Barbra Streisand's place in theatrical history. Don't miss your chance to see Babs on the big screen.
We'll be keeping things camp with Bollywood classic Sholay! (Flames) in 16 March, things get moodier on 23 March with Lars Von Trier's brutally realistic Dancer in the Dark starring Bjork, meanwhile on 30 March we watch as two of the most enchanting leads in cinema history (Catherine Deneuve and Nino Castelnuovo) fall in love in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.
Then for the series' curtain call on 06 April, we bring the swinging sixties back to life with Hair: The Musical.
