CLOSING THE SEASON WITH LOTS OF MUSIC
This summer’s Park Your Cinema concludes in September, with films in which music is the main star. We invite you to SNFCC’s Great Lawn to sing and dance along with your favorite film characters from the late seventies.
Program curated by Elias Frangoulis
The Blues Brothers: Plot
Jake and Elwood are on a mission: to save the Catholic orphanage where they grew up from bankruptcy. They need $5,000. Which they don’t have. But, boy, can they play rhythm and blues! If only they could get their old band back together, that is. A musical comedy adventure that broke box office records in 1980, with an amazing soundtrack – a cult classic that will always remind us of the late great comedian John Belushi. Featuring Ray Charles, Cab Calloway, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, John Lee Hooker and James Brown in dance numbers that will get you up on your feet, famous director cameos, and a record number of cars (103!) destroyed while filming the car chase scenes.
Directed by John Landis
