Inwood Art Works’ Film Works Alfresco: Swing Time – Monday, June 4, 2018 – 103 minutes. Musical Comedy in English with Spanish subtitles (1936, USA). Appropriate for Families and Young Adults. Pre-show in partnership with NoMAA, presenting a Free Instructional Dance Class with Harlem One Stop at 7:30pm.
Swing Time is often named as the best or most popular musical/romance of dancing duo Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. The film’s most indelible image is that of Fred Astaire, immaculately attired in top hat and tails, hopping a freight car–a perfect encapsulation of the film’s Depression-era cheekiness. The Jerome Kern-Dorothy Fields score includes such standards-to-be as “Pick Yourself Up,” “A Fine Romance,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Never Gonna Dance” and “Bojangles of Harlem.”
*In the case of inclement weather, the pre-show & screening will be moved indoors to Culture Hub at 440 West 202nd Street.
