Newly Restored

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

In this beautifully restored Bob Fosse classic, Shirley MacLaine plays a tireless optimist on a quest to join the ranks of respectable society and leave behind the seedy New York City cabaret where she works as a hostess.


SWEET CHARITY is, in short, a terrific musical film.”Variety

SWEET CHARITY boasts a bold and expressive visual style. Employing a wide range of in-vogue techniques—zooms, freeze frames, rhythmic editing, SWEET CHARITY looks like no other Broadway adaptation of the time.” Amanda McQueen, Cinematheque 

“Fosse’s choreographic conceptions are intensely dramatic, and the movie has some of the best dancing in American musicals of the period.” – Pauline Kael, The New Yorker
