Till the Clouds Roll By (1946) Tuesday, December 22 @ Darkside Cinema

Directed by Richard Whorf, starring Van Heflin, Van Johnson, Robert Walker, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne, Cyd Charisse and Angela Lansbury.
Celebrating the life of legendary songwriter Jerome Kern, this “biography” is much less an accurate telling of his life than it is a gorgeous presentation of his life’s work. Featuring 21 amazing and grandiose CloudsRollPRINTrenditions of his legendary hits by the biggest stars of the day, the film is almost more of a concert film than a plain narrative. Robert Walker portrays Kern and Van Heflin plays his fictional best pal/arranger. Frank Sinatra plays himself, as he always did. It’s going to be grand night of music with one of the great MGM musicals of the era. Don’t miss it!
This CMNYK screening is going down at the Darkside Cinema on Tuesday, December 22nd, and the fun starts at 7:00 PM. As always, admission is FREE, but donations are welcomed and benefit the Darkside Cinema renovations. The show will be preceded by an intro from guy who is sad Chanukah is over already, Ygal Kaufman, as well as newsreels, shorts, cartoons and other weird goodies from 1946 to make the experience extra authentic. See you all there!
