SDGMC Movie Night at the Balboa Theatre
There’s nothing like the moment when the lights dim low, your popcorn is buttered just right and the big screen flickers to life with promises to sweep you away to another world. We love the movies! But, we just might love the music from the movies even more. From Kermit strumming his banjo while questioning rainbows, to Maria and the Von Trapp children serenading a lonely goatherd, it’s the music we often remember long after “The End” appears. Tickets available HERE.
This spring, celebrate the music of the movies with the 200 singers, dancers and musicians of the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus. Relive unforgettable moments like Selma’s Academy Award®-winning civil rights anthem “Glory,” La La Land’s poignant “City of Stars” and Willy Wonka’s wistfully wonderful “Pure Imagination.” Magic reigns with Rufus Wainwright’s soaring “Hallelujah,” Adele’s ode to James Bond in “Skyfall” and the Bee Gee’s iconic “How Deep is Your Love” from Saturday Night Fever.
But wait, did someone say wigs, makeup and costume changes galore? Our specialty! The chills will be multiplying with our take on “You’re the One that I Want” from Grease and you’ve got to see to believe our take on “Le Jazz Hot” from Victor/Victoria. Raise your hands to the heavens with our nuns rejoicing “O Happy Day” from Sister Act, hear the song that made Kevin Bacon a star in the dancing smash “Footloose,” remember her name (it was Irene Cara) from Fame and much more!
The Balboa Theatre Foundation was organized in 1986 to advocate for the preservation and restoration of the 1924 Balboa Theatre at 868 Fourth Avenue in downtown San Diego. Our mission is to provide the resources to enhance and nurture the historic Balboa Theatre as a cultural center for San Diego arts and education.
