A 1940s dramedy starring Lucille Ball & Maureen O'Hara, Dance Girl Dance follows the life, loves, trials & tribulations of two chalk-&-cheese roommates who dream of hitting the big time as dancers.

Dates and Times: Sat 24 at 14:30 & Mon 26 Feb at 18:20.

Meet Bubbles (Ball’s sassy burlesque siren) and Judy (O’Hara’s aspiring ballerina): chalk-and-cheese roommates dreaming of hitting the big time as dancers. This realistic portrait of ambitious, strong-willed women, and of female friendship and rivalry, is all the more remarkable and nuanced for being directed by the pioneering Dorothy Arzner, one of only two female directors working in Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Plus, catch Anthony Gross and Courtland Hector Hoppin's short film La Joie de Vivre: A tone poem: two woodland sprites dance atop power lines and among flowers while being pursued.
