Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Classic Cinema Night

Join us as we watch the energetic musical Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954). Set in Oregon in 1850, but based on the ancient Roman legend of the Sabine women, this film is particularly known for Micheal Kidd's unusual choreography. He makes dance numbers out of frontier pursuits such as chopping wood and raising a barn. Film critic Stephanie Zacharek has called the barn-raising sequence in Seven Brides "one of the most rousing dance numbers ever put on screen."
