The season finale of Chestnut Hill Film Group’s ‘Tuesday Nights at the Movies’ will conclude with the 1972 musical film, “Cabaret.”
In 1931 Berlin, set against the backdrop of the Nazis rising to power, a young American cabaret singer befriends a student from Cambridge University. The two become close, with the student enamored by the singer’s decadent lifestyle. Just as the singer begins to fall in love with the student, she learns that he is bi-sexual. Soon, a rich baron enters the scene and a love triangle ensues.
Directed by Bob Fosse and loosely based on the 1966 Broadway musical, the film stars Liza Minnelli, Michael York, Marisa Berenson and Joel Grey. It went on to win eight Oscars at the 1973 Academy Awards.
The movie begins at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, at Woodmere Art Museum. Doors open at 6:30. Admission is free, although donations are recommended.
