Get ready to blast off at the Rocketman Sing-A-Long!, because Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting, but it’s really made for rocking and rolling! See the Oscar-winning Elton John musical on the big screen and sing-a-long to all of Captain Fantastic’s greatest hits! We’ll have a pre-show music video salon to help us warm up our vocal chords, complimentary glow sticks and sunglasses for all, and an Elton John Costume Contest, where you can really rock those electric boots and mohair suits. Yes indeed, The Bitch is Back!
“A sequin-encrusted delight that explodes with the kind of color and energy that only Elton John himself could invoke … Taron Egerton is a brilliant, electrifying presence.” – John Nugent, Empire
A dazzling and emotionally-charged musical fantasia, Rocketman is a dream-like journey through one man’s incredible transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John! Starring Golden Globe-winner Taron Egerton as Elton and Jamie Bell as his lyricist and collaborator Bernie Taupin, the film tells the moving story of a long-term artistic friendship and the struggle to survive amidst the insanity of celebrity and self-destruction. Featuring colorfully inventive and eccentric interpretations of many of Elton John’s greatest ‘70s hits including Tiny Dancer, Bennie and the Jets, Crocodile Rock and the sweeping title tune (all sung by Egerton himself), not to mention a jaw-dropping parade of some of the singer’s most memorably outrageous fashion statements, Rocketman is a freewheeling, joyful, and ultimately inspiring (not to mention, totally rocking!) look at a difficult period in a rock legend’s brilliant career. Also starring Richard Madden as Elton’s first manager, John Reid and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother, Sheila Farebrother. (Dir. by Dexter Fletcher, 2019, USA/UK, 121 mins., Rated R)
