Weekday Matinee Series

In 1920’s Chicago, Ruth Etting scrapes a living by dancing with patrons at an exclusive nightclub. When she loses her job, racketeer Marty Snyder takes her under his wing and offers her an opportunity to achieve her ambition to become a singer.

Although suspicious of Marty’s motives, Ruth plays along and in no time is a singing sensation, drawing in the crowds on Broadway and looking forward to a career in the movies.

When payback day comes, Ruth has no choice but to marry the man who made her a star, even though she has lost her heart to songwriter Johnny Alderman. Marty’s attempts to control Ruth’s career soon brings the couple to the brink of disaster.

FYI: Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and some biscuits in the cinema from 10am before the screening commences.
