Text Box: We invite you to join

The Albuquerque Film Club is open to everyone of any age who enjoys watching movies on a big screen in the company of other film lovers and then sharing observations about what they have seen. All that is needed is the interest and an email address for notifications. This is a social rather than scholarly group, although some members know a lot about motion pictures while others wish to expand their appreciation.
The AFC will host movies at the Guild Cinema one weekend every two months, Saturday and Sunday matinees. After the screening, we invite everyone to join us to gab about movies and meet fellow film fans. Ticket prices for the matinees will be $5 per person.
Our purpose is to revive interesting films from silent classics to productions of the big studio era to intimate independent films of more recent years—comedies, dramas, film noir, fantasy, adventure. While most of the movies we screen will be English language, we shall include intriguing films from abroad. The films you attend will help choose future programs in the AFC series.

To join Albuquerque Film Club send your name, address and phone number via email to:
information@vaudeville.org.

You will be added to our email list and receive notifications of upcoming AFC monthly screenings and other events. AFC/AVM does not share mailing lists with anyone, ever.

Jean Renoir’s French Cancan

Jean Renoir’s 1955 musical, French Cancan, starring Jean Gabin, Françoise Arnoul, Maria Félix, Giani Esposito, Pierre Olaf, Lydia Johnson & Michel Piccoli, with cameo performances by Edith Piaf, Patachou & Andre Claveau.
Jean Renoir’s French Cancan is his valentine to the Paris of his Impressionist father, to la Belle Epoque, the song and dance of popular theatre, and the mix of aristos, knaves, elegant gents and grand horizontals of Montmarte. French Cancan is also the story of a show business entrepreneur, Henri Danglard (Jean Gabin), who rescues his own fortunes as he transforms an old café-concert theatre into a palace of variété featuring the revival of a boisterous and risqué dance called French Cancan. Danglard also discovers (and courts) a sweet innocent laundress, Nini (Françoise Arnoul). She reciprocates his love and agrees to be trained as a cancan dancer. On the opening night of his sumptuously refurbished night club, Moulin Rouge, Danglard sends Nini onto the stage a young girl, and, in true backstage musical comedy style, she comes back a star. The colorful, rowdy cancan finale of high kicks, splits, cartwheels and whirling legs, legs, legs flashes before our eyes for nearly the entire closing reel, and it doesn’t seem a moment too long.
