THIS APRIL- The Paradise is going back to basics with nine films that tell thee story of our founding decade: the drama, the depression, and the design. The Paradise Presents DIRTY DECO: an aesthetic journey through the 1930s. From subversive pre-code productions, to later works that recapture the sordid underbelly of the era from a contemporary political lens- all through the sheen of glorious art deco. Step back in time and join us in Paradise as we travel back to the dirty decade...
WARM LOVE! HILARIOUS FUN! SWEET MUSIC! HOT LYRICS! Join us on April 10th for another pre-code musical delight! Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald star in Rouben Mamoulian's dazzling comedy of manners set to the tune of Rodgers and Hart. From 1932- it's LOVE ME TONIGHT!
In this stylish musical comedy, Maurice Courtelin (Maurice Chevalier), a French tailor, travels to the castle of nearby royalty to collect payment on long overdue bills. A series of mishaps force Courtelin to pose as a baron while he tries to woo the elegant Princess Jeanette (Jeanette MacDonald). Resistant to Courtelin's charms at first, she eventually becomes intrigued by him. However, when the truth gets out about Courtelin's humble identity, he risks losing the only woman that he loves.
