Oklahoma! (1955) <h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>
Set in pre-statehood Oklahoma where there’s beautiful mornings, beautiful days, and feelings that things are going to go your way, this Rodgers and Hammerstein musical hit the stages in 1943 before being adapted for film in 1955. Following two romantic storylines, the story doesn’t drift far from what you may have seen performed in your high school gym converted into an auditorium. On the farmer side of things, Curly (Gordon MacRae) is a hardheaded cowboy whose feelings for the stubborn Laurey (Shirley Jones) are compounded by the farmhand Jud (Rod Steiger). Meanwhile in cowboy country, Ado Annie (Gloria Grahame) is torn between a peddler and the rancher Will (Gene Nelson).

Hello, Dolly! (1969) <h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>
Recently glowin’ and crowin’ on Broadway with Bette and ‘dette playing the iconic titular character, Dolly has been back where she belonged of late, which now includes the Browning Cinema. Playing Dolly in the film version, which is about to celebrate its golden anniversary, is Barbra Streisand, who is a matchmaker in 1890s New York City. Among her latest clients are the cantankerous "half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder (Walter Matthau) and a young artist named Ambrose (Tommy Tune), who is in love with Horace's niece, Ermengarde (Joyce Ames). As Dolly’s schemes (and hats) grow in complexity, she soon finds her own romantic interests encroaching on her work.
Wed 7/18/18 7:00PM Browning Cinema


Hair (1979) <h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>
Directed by Milos Forman and choreographed by Twyla Tharp, the film diverges from the stage version in unique ways although many core elements remain the same. In New York City for the first time while on his way to enlist in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, Oklahoma farm hand Claude Hooper Bukowski (John Savage) meets up with a freewheeling group of Central Park hippies with shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen hair who are led by the irrepressible George Berger (Treat Williams). When the unlikely friends meet upper-middle-class debutante Sheila Franklin (Beverly D'Angelo), sparks fly between the country boy and the city girl, and Berger's troupe attempts to keep the young lovers together amid fallout from the war.
Wed 7/25/18 7:00PM Browning Cinema


Moulin Rouge! (2001) <h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>
While our other Summer Classics musicals focus on Oklahoma (Oklahoma!), New York City (Hello, Dolly!) or both (Hair), Moulin Rouge takes us fin de siècle Paris and the eponymous nightclub at the heart of its vibrant (and aggressively postmodern) bohemian art scene. A young Englishman (Ewan McGregor), having recently arrived in the country to follow his passion to write, becomes infatuated with Satine (Nicole Kidman), the world’s most famous can-can dancer. She, however, has been promised by her manager to a Duke in return for funding his next production. As the young lovers meet in secret, Satine's wedding day draws closer while hiding secrets from both Christian and the Duke.
