Tyler Gage (Channing Tatum) has been in and out of trouble for most of his life.

He catches the eye of Nora (Jenna Dewan), a gifted ballet student, who is trying to incorporate hip-hop moves into her classical routines. After some initial hesitation, Nora convinces Tyler to help her with her choreography and the sparks fly.

Top Hat

07:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater

Showman Jerry Travers (Fred Astaire) is working for bumbling producer Horace Hardwick in London. Jerry demonstrates his new dance steps late one night in Horace’s hotel room, much to the annoyance of Dale Tremont (Ginger Rogers), who is sleeping below. When Dale goes upstairs to complain, the two are immediately attracted to each other but complications arise when Dale confuses married Horace with single Jerry the next day.

Top Hat was the most successful picture of Astaire and Rogers’ partnership (and Astaire’s second most successful picture after Easter Parade), achieving second place in worldwide box-office receipts for 1935. The film’s songs were written by Irving Berlin. “Top Hat, White Tie and Tails” and “Cheek to Cheek” have become American song classics.

The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture, as well as Art Direction, Original Song, and Dance Direction. In 1990, Top Hat was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The film ranked number 15 on the 2006 American Film Institute’s list of best musicals.

Doors for this general admission event will open at 6:30pm, and the event will begin at 7pm with a short foxtrot lesson by Arthur Murray instructors before the film.

This film is part of our DANCE MOVES & MOVIES summer series:
June 22 – Happy Feet
June 29 – Dirty Dancing
July 20 – Step Up
August 3 – Top Hat
