Lights, Camera, Deco! Film Series: Swing Time
Where: Woolworth Building
Where: 15 Barclay Street, New York, NY 10007
About the Event:
To kick of it’s film series, ADSNY will host a special screening of the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musical which many hail as their best. With sparkling direction and tunes by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields, including the Oscar-winning “The Way You Look Tonight.” The evocation of New York nightlife is out of this world and the dance studio where Ginger teaches might be the sleekest workplace of the Thirties.
Howard Mandelbaum and Eric Myers, authors of Screen Deco: A Celebration of High Style in Hollywood, will introduce this glamorous film and explore how Art Deco’s clean lines and geometric forms complemented glistening black-and-white cinematography to create some of the screen’s most iconic images.
