NYC – The Blues Brothers Screening
Director John Landis hosts a screening on Tuesday, November 22 at 7pm.
(1980) 133min, 35mm
The threadbarest of plots allows room for the pure pleasures of this two-hour chase scene. Upon learning that the orphanage they grew up in will close if they can’t come up with $5,000, Jake and Elwood Blues (Belushi and Aykroyd) set out on a “mission from God” (with an army of cops, jocks, and white supremacists in tow) to reunite their blues band. With powerhouse musical numbers by Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Cab Calloway, and more in the classic blues dives of Chicago.
