  • Australia (PG-13)

    Seven years after Moulin Rouge, Baz Luhrmann returns with this frothy historical romance set in his native land during the run-up to World War II. more...
  • Bran Nue Dae (PG-13)

    Adapted from a stage show, this Australian musical-comedy seems like a project for which everyone involved had ideas but no one had veto power. more...
  • Burlesque (PG-13)

    Christina Aguilera is an Iowa waitress who shimmies and sings her way to stardom in a fading bump-and-grind nightclub on the Sunset Strip; Cher is the owner and top chanteuse, mending costumes when not jousting with the rich developer (Eric Dane of Grey's Anatomy) who wants both the club and Aguilera. more...
  • Chicago (PG-13)

    The story here started out in 1926 as a play by Maurine Dallas Watkins, eventually became William Wellman's cynical film satire Roxie Hart (1942), then resurfaced as a stage musical by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse. more...
  • Dreamgirls (PG-13)

    Elegant, unabashedly theatrical, and packed with lush concert scenes and period-perfect costumes, this musical by Bill Condon (Kinsey) is remarkably faithful to director-choreographer Michael Bennett's Broadway hit about a black girl group of the 60s and 70s. more...
  • Footloose (PG-13)

    In this remake of the 1984 teenpic, a brooding city kid (Kenny Wormald) moves to a conservative village where dancing's been outlawed. more...
  • Joyful Noise (PG-13)

    Everyone onscreen (including Dolly Parton, Queen Latifah, and the lesser-known supporting players) seems to be having a good time in this cheesy musical comedy, even though the material is strictly by-the-numbers. more...
  • La La Land
  • La La Land (PG-13)

    When Damien Chazelle tried to resurrect the movie musical with his debut feature, Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench (2009), he was constrained by the modest means of a Canadian indie; now, having made a name for himself with the Oscar-nominated jazz drama Whiplash (2014), he returns to the challenge with $30 million behind him, and the result is dazzling. more...
  • La La Land: The IMAX 2D Experience (PG-13)

    When Damien Chazelle tried to resurrect the movie musical with his debut feature, Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench (2009), he was constrained by the modest means of a Canadian indie; now, having made a name for himself with the Oscar-nominated jazz drama Whiplash (2014), he returns to the challenge with $30 million behind him, and the result is dazzling. more...
  • Les Miserables (PG-13)

    This slick adaptation of the beloved stage musical (itself an adaptation of the Victor Hugo classic) offers plenty of old-school craftsmanship, with director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) doing a serviceable David Lean impression in his handling of crowds and large-scale mise-en-scene. more...
  • Moulin Rouge! (PG-13)

    Though I still like John Huston's 1952 movie with the same title a bit more, this steamroller by Baz Luhrmann about 1899 Paris and 2001 pop TV—a definite improvement over the repulsive Strictly Ballroom—is diverting, energetic, and even reasonably satisfying, so long as you aren't looking for a real musical to take its place. more...
