Description

*Double Feature:

The Landlord, 1970, MGM Repertory, 112 min, USA, Comedy/Drama. Dir. Hal Ashby*

In this sharp, funny dramedy, Beau Bridges plays the title role, a man who buys a tenement building with the intention of renovating it himself – only to change his plans after he interacts with the tenants. [35mm]

The Fabulous Baker Boys, 1989, 20th Century Fox, 114 min, USA, Drama/Romance/Music. Dir. Steve Kloves

Brothers Frank and Jack (Beau Bridges and Jeff Bridges) have carved out a career playing hackneyed jazz duets on matching grand pianos in night clubs. When they begin to see a downturn in the number of gigs they can get, they resort to the tried-and-true “sex sells” technique and hire eccentric, irreverent ex-escort Susie Diamond (Michelle Pfeifer) to sing as part of their routine. But even when the three-person act becomes a hit, the personal issues Frank and Jack have been harboring against each other – and Jack and Susie’s mutual attraction – threaten to break up the group’s newfound success. [35mm]
