We're back with our 10th year of Saturday morning classic films at the historic Lafayette Theatre!
This week's attraction is John Huston's MOULIN ROUGE on Saturday, April 21 at 11:30am.
MOULIN ROUGE (1952) starring Jose Ferrer, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Colette Marchand
As a dwarf, Toulouse-Lautrec (Jose Ferrer) believes he's too ugly to ever fall in love. So he loses himself in painting...and cognac. A fixture as Paris' infamous turn-of-the-century Moulin Rouge nightclub, Lautrec meets a girl from the street...who then breaks his heart. Luckily, newfound artistic success, copious amounts of drink, and friendship with a new woman keep him alive. Will he be able to mend his broken heart in time to recognize the true love now staring him in the face? Nominated for seven Academy Awards (including Best Picture) and winner of two, this visually stunning biography of master artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is a "painting come to life" (Time), "Flawlessly directed" (The Hollywood Reporter) by John Huston ("The African Queen"), from a script by Anthony Veiller and Huston, MOULIN ROUGE is simply "irresistible" (Newsweek). We are proud to present MOULIN ROUGE in a beautiful mint-condition 35mm color print from MGM & Park Circus.
