To celebrate our blockbuster autumn season Musicals! The Greatest Show on Earth, we proudly present four stunning new BFI DVD and Blu-ray releases; Hair, Moulin Rouge, Yentl, and Les Demoiselles de Rochefort.
About the season:
Musicals! will celebrate the genre's greatest stars including Gene Kelly, Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland and Doris Day, and spotlight the directors and composers whose creativity was the driving force behind countless beloved musicals; from the virtuoso choreographer and director Bob Fosse (Cabaret, Sweet Charity) to the late great composer Michel Legrand (Yentl, Les Demoiselles de Rochefort).
The programme will also shine a light on the musicals which engage with socio-political themes, such as racism or the horrors of the Depression, as well as celebrate the films which provide audiences with escapism from political uncertainty and troubled times; from the Golden Age of Hollywood’s box office boom during WW2 and in the post-war years, to the phenomenal successes of the latest musical films like The Lion King (Jon Favreau, 2019), which has already surpassed $1.5 billion globally. From singalonga-screenings to Q&As and immersive events for the whole family, Musicals! is guaranteed to have the UK singing and dancing in the aisles this autumn.
Musicals! screenings are happening around the UK- find an event near you here.
