MATINEE: BLUE HAWAII
US, 1961, DCP, VO ENG ST FR & NL OND, 102'
Take a nostalgic trip back to the glory days of your local picture palace with a Sunday matinee that caters to everyone in the family, complete with all the trimmings: teasers, popsicles, coming attractions and a vintage 60s movie starring The King himself: Elvis Presley! Rock-A-Hula-Baby!
It’s Hawaiian shirts and leis galore as Elvis Presley plays beach-loving ex-G.I. Chad, who gets work as a tour guide even though his mom (Angela Lansbury, in real life only 10 years older than Elvis) wants him to carry on the family fruit business. Songs include "Can’t Help Falling in Love" and "Rock-A-Hula Baby".
It's time for an adventurous Hawaii matinee!
