Great American Songbook Movie Series
Thu., Nov. 15, 7:30 p.m., Fri., Nov. 16, 2 & 7:30 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 17, 10:30 a.m. 2012
Heartland Truly Moving Pictures and Michael Feinstein's Great American Songbook Initiative are teaming up this fall to present a series of classic movie musicals on a big screen at the Palladium. The series kicks off Thursday, Nov. 15 with White Christmas, and Feinstein will be in the house Friday, Nov. 16 to introduce An American in Paris and sign copies (from 5:30-7 p.m.) of his new book, The Gershwins and Me. The Gershwins of the title are, of course, George and Ira; the “Me” is Feinstein, who worked as a librarian for Ira Gershwin from the late '70s, a job which poised him to become both an interpreter and historian of the Great American Songbook. Tickets are $7.50 and all screenings but one will be from Blu-Ray.
Nov. 15, 7:30 p.m.: White Christmas (1954)
Nov. 16, 2 p.m.: The Sound of Music (1965)
Nov. 16, 7:30 p.m.: An American in Paris (1951)
