Summer Exhibition - GETZ: Covers from “The New Yorker” Magazine

Summer Exhibition - GETZ: Covers from “The New Yorker” Magazine

June 2-August 28
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 2, 4:30-6:30 PM

Our Summer Exhibition features the iconic work of the late Arthur Getz. Getz is best known for his fifty-year career as a cover artist for The New Yorker magazine. Between 1938 and 1988, two hundred and thirteen Getz covers appeared, making Getz the most prolific New Yorker cover artist of the twentieth century.

The show will feature thirty of Getz’s original cover paintings, covering the span of Getz’s work from the 1950’s through to the 1980’s. The works for this extraordinary exhibition have been generously loaned to The Moviehouse by Getz’s family and are not for sale.

The writer John Updike, in his foreword to The Complete Book of Covers from The New Yorker, 1925 – 1989, wrote: “The artist who has contributed most covers is Arthur Getz, whose alert eye and confident brush find endless silent dramas of contrast and tone in the world around us…”

Royal Ballet: Manon

Royal Ballet: Manon

Wednesday, May 30, 6PM
Kenneth MacMillan’s powerful telling of Manon and Des Grieux’s tragic love is a masterpiece of modern ballet, set to music by Massenet.

Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan
Music: Jules Massenet
Conductor: Martin Yates

Kenneth MacMillan’s source for Manon was the 18th-century French novel by Abbé Prévost, already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. Renowned dance musician Leighton Lucas and his assistant Hilda Gaunt provided a score drawn from across Massenet’s music, including his famous yearning Elégie as the theme for the lovers. The premiere was given on 7 March 1974, with the lead roles of Manon and Des Grieux danced by Antoinette Sibley and Anthony Dowell. The ballet quickly became a staple of The Royal Ballet’s repertory, and a touchstone of adult, dramatic dance.

 


 

TCM Big Screen Classics: The Producers

TCM Big Screen Classics: The Producers

A Special 50th Anniversary Event
Wednesday, June 6

Cast: Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder, Dick Shawn, Kenneth Mars, Lee Meredith
Writer/Director: Mel Brooks

“I want… I want… I want everything I’ve ever seen in the movies!” Once the King of The Great White Way, Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) is reduced to romancing old ladies to finance his next flop show. But when nervous accountant Leopold Bloom (Gene Wilder) surmises that more money could be made from a flop than a hit, the next step is to produce the Busby Berkeleyesque musical Springtime for Hitler and to cast stoned-out Flower Child “LSD” (Dick Shawn) in the lead. A surefire flop — or is it? Writer/director Mel Brooks nabbed an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay of 1968, while his movie skyrocketed from controversial cult comedy to Classic, now on the National Film Registry and umpteen lists of the funniest movies ever made, with Mostel & Wilder considered the greatest comedy team since Laurel & Hardy and The Marx Brothers.

See the restored film from Studiocanal and Rialto Pictures in honor of the 50th anniversary of its release. Includes exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies.

 


 

Bolshoi Ballet 2017/18 Season Finale: Coppélia

Bolshoi Ballet 2017/18 Season Finale: Coppélia

Sunday, June 10, 12:55PM

Music: Léo Delibes
Choreography: Sergei Vikharev after Marius Petipa and Enrico Cecchetti

Swanhilda notices her fianceé Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppélia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson… The Bolshoi’s unique version of Coppélia exhibits a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th -century choreography of this ebullient comedy involving a feisty heroine, a boyish fianceé with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker. The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals abound in youthful energy and irresistible humor in this effervescent production.

 


 

Exhibition On Screen Encore: I, Claude Monet

Exhibition On Screen Encore: I, Claude Monet

Tuesday, June 19, 7PM

Directed by: Phil Grabsky

Using letters and other private writings I, Claude Monet reveals new insight into the man who not only painted the picture that gave birth to impressionism but who was perhaps the most influential and successful painter of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Despite this, and perhaps because of it, Monet’s life is a gripping tale about a man who, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide. Then, as his art developed and his love of gardening led to the glories of his garden at Giverney, his humour, insight and love of life is revealed.

Shot on location in Paris, London, Normandy and Venice I, Claude Monet is a cinematic immersion into some of the most loved and iconic scenes in Western Art.

Director: Gary Ross
Screenplay: Gary Ross, Olivia Milch

Five years, eight months, 12 days…and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it’s going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwafina); expert fence Tammy (Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose (Bonham Carter). The target is a cool $150 million dollars in diamonds—diamonds that will be around the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Hathaway), who will be centerstage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. The plan is rock solid, but everything will need to be flawless if the team is going to get in and get away with the ice. All in plain sight.

Royal Ballet: Swan Lake

Royal Ballet: Swan Lake

Wednesday, July 18, 6PM
Live from the Royal Opera House, London
The Royal Ballet presents a new production of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent classical ballet, with additional choreography by Liam Scarlett and designs by John Macfarlane.

Choreography: Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov
Additional choreography: Liam Scarlett and Frederick Ashton
Music: Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky
Conductor: Koen Kessels

Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet. Given its status today as arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score, but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.
