"Red Shoes" Combines Dance, Romance
One of the recognized all-time great movies, “The Red Shoes,” combines ballet, intrigue and romance. A 35 mm print of this 1948 classic, restored by UCLA, is being shown at the Trylon micro-theater in Minneapolis. This is reminiscent of the store front theater on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley in the 60s that showed W.C. Fields and Marx Bros. movies long before the advent of VCRs and DVDs. Historic films get the big screen showing at the Trylon.
