STRICTLY BALLROOM . . . coming 7/30!

26 Jul

This Tuesday on the Pier, Baz Luhrmann’s first and possibly best film: STRICTLY BALLROOM!

The inaugural installment of his “Red Curtain Trilogy,” which went on to include ROMEO + JULIET and MOULIN ROUGE, STRICTLY BALLROOM is his lavish and laugh-out-loud funny send-up of Australian competitive dance culture. It’s like SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER by way of Christopher Guest. And you owe it to yourself to see this, if only to cleanse from your mind the mess that was GATSBY and remind yourself what an amazing filmmaker Luhrmann can be.

Our sponsors for the evening are Waterfront Kitchens and Mark’s Pizza, who will be on site serving fresh pizza by the slice. Steve’s Key Lime will be open across the way serving tarts and swingles, and our concession stand will have water, San Pellegrino, and more.

Film rolls at 8:30, or as soon as it’s dark enough, and a classic Popeye cartoon kicks things off.

Now, “Show me your Paso Doble!”
