Recommended for ages 8+*
In answer to his kids’ complaints that they weren’t allowed to see The Godfather, director Alan Parker reimagined Prohibition-era Chicago and the exploits of Al Capone as a toe-tapping musical with an all-kid cast and pie fights in place of gun battles. Jodie Foster and Scott Baio lead the cast as a torch singer and a tough guy who defend their speakeasy from a rival gang, set to the catchy rhythms of Paul Williams’s songs. (1976, dir. Alan Parker, 35mm, 93 min.)
*All ages are welcome. Feel free to take a break with infants and toddlers in the theater lobby.
