Once upon a time there was a Broadway producer...who met a «creative» but timid accountant. Together they concocted the most outrageous $1,000,000 scheme in the annals of Show Biz. Celebrate the 50th anniversary of this comedic masterpiece w us. We'll have four screenings:
— 2pm & 7pm Jun 3
— 2pm & 7pm Jun 6
“I want… I want… I want everything I've ever seen in the movies!” Once the King of The Great White Way, Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) is reduced to romancing old ladies to finance his next flop show. But when nervous accountant Leopold Bloom (Gene Wilder) surmises that more money could be made from a flop than a hit, the next step is to produce the Busby Berkeleyesque musical Springtime for Hitler and to cast stoned-out Flower Child “LSD” (Dick Shawn) in the lead.
A surefire flop — or is it? Writer/director Mel Brooks nabbed an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay of 1968, while his movie skyrocketed from controversial cult comedy to Classic, now on the National Film Registry and umpteen lists of the funniest movies ever made, w Mostel & Wilder considered the greatest comedy team since Laurel & Hardy and The Marx Brothers.
