The Jazz Singer screening (2019-Jan-13 @ 7 p.m.)

Sunday, January 13 @ 19:0020:28
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen The Jazz Singer (Alan Crosland, U.S. 1927, 88 min., 35mm) as part of the L'chaim: Celebrating Jewish Life series.

Best known as the first big hit feature-length "talkie" with a synchronized music score, singing, and speech, the film is also a rarity in early Hollywood—it features a Jewish protagonist. Al Jolson stars as Jakie Rabinowitz, a young Jewish man who runs away from his devout family because they reject his desire to perform popular music. He becomes a successful jazz singer under the Americanized name Jack Robin, but he longs for reconciliation with his family. It has been argued that Jolson's controversial performance in blackface—a common practice at the time—symbolizes and complicates the central theme of a Jewish man presenting himself as a white gentile, pointing to the "duplicity and ethnic hybridity within American identity." The Jazz Singer was nominated for an Oscar for Best Writing at the first Academy Awards in 1929.

Maxie screening (2019-Jan-15 @ 7:30 p.m.)

Tuesday, January 15 @ 19:3021:08
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States

The Dryden will screen Maxie (Paul Aaron, U.S. 1985, 98 min., 35mm) as part of the Glenn Close series.

Just three years after her film debut in The World According to Garp, Glenn Close starred as Jan, a reserved housewife who moves into an old San Francisco house with her husband, Nick. After discovering a message written in the 1920s by deceased starlet Maxie Malone under layers of wallpaper, Nick finds a copy of the only silent movie containing a bit part played by Maxie. The haunting spirit of Maxie, who wishes to fulfill her Hollywood destiny cut short by a fatal car crash, is subsequently awoken and possesses Jan, causing the staid housewife to become outgoing and flirtatious to hilarious effect. At turns vivacious, musical, and affecting, this film earned Glenn Close a nomination for a Saturn Award for Best Actress.

Jersey Boys screening

Wednesday, January 16 @ 19:3021:44
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen Jersey Boys (Clint Eastwood, U.S. 2014, 134 min., 35mm) as part of the Filmmaking at 80 series.

After turning eighty in 2010, Eastwood turned his lens to American historical stories, including this musical biography of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, based on the stage play of the same name. Tommy and Frankie have three passions: music, girls, and crime. From the wrong side of the tracks, and in the mafia's heavy shadow, they spend their nights stealing and playing. Lacking a unique look or sound, they are relegated to backup vocals—that is, until the group writes a song that highlights Frankie's falsetto. Amid a whirlwind rise to fame, the group has to deal with mounting pressures and ultimately decide what it is that makes them happy. One of Eastwood's most surprising films, it demonstrates that even at this point in his career, he is willing to take risks by stepping out of his typical genres.
