New Year, Old Movies

At the Jean Cocteau Cinema, we're celebrating the coming of 2014 with a return to the 1930s.

Opening on Friday, to fend off winter's chills, are two classic black & white musicals from the 1950s, ROBERTA and FOOTLIGHT PARADE.

FOOTLIGHT PARADE is a personal favorite of mine — hey, Jimmy Cagney, Ruby Keeler, Honeymoon Hotel, Shanghai Lil… hard to beat.  ROBERTA is one of Parris's all time faves, with Fred Astaire, Ginjer Rogers, and Irene Dunne in white satin.

So come join us and sing and dance your way into the new year.  See you at the movies.

2014.  Wow.

What happened to 2013?  It seemed to go by in a blur.

Of course, all the years are going by faster than they used to.

Here's wishing a great new year to all my friends and readers.
