Milwaukee film historian Dale Kuntz presents selections from his rare collection of classic films from the 30s and 40's. Films are shown on 16mm, reel-to-reel film. Most of these cinematic treasures are not available on DVD so don't miss this opportunity to see these films in their original glory on the big screen. Prior to each screening, Dale fascinates the audience with his knowledge of film history, giving the inside scoop on each film, including bizarre details about the stars and clues to help the audience spot little oddities that ended up in the film instead of on the cutting room floor.
April - June, 2015
Show Girls Musicals
From April 10 through July 5, the Charles Allis Art Museum will have a new exhibition entitled More on Less: The History of Burlesque in America From Lydia Thompson to Amber Ray. To compliment the exhibition, Movie Time will show a series of “Show Girls Musicals”. Sorry, we don’t have any of the films that were shown along with the acts in the burlesque theaters. (You wouldn’t want to see them anyhow!) Special films were produced that were not allowed in the regular movie theaters. They were far more risqué with poor production values and often grainy film. Our feature films show chorus girls appearing in vaudeville. Burlesque was similar to vaudeville, only a lot more raunchy with comedians, solo acts and a big finale. Our gals are a bit more refined. They may not be Greer Garson, Greta Garbo or Meryl Streep, but they are sassy, saucy and sensational – Alice Faye, Betty Grable, Judy Garland and even Barbara Stanwyck.
