The Red Shoes – 70th Anniversary (July 12)

July 12, 2018

THE RED SHOES, the singular fantasia from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, is cinema’s quintessential backstage drama, as well as one of the most glorious Technicolor feasts ever concocted for the screen. In the film, a young ballerina finds herself torn between the passion of a ruthless impressario and the artistic fervor of a composer.  Apart of our 5th Anniversary Celebration of Digital Gym CINEMA! Visit here for entire film series schedule.



This Powell And Pressburger classic is widely considered to be one of the greatest films ever made and winner of two Oscars. It focuses on Vicky, a young ballerina starring in a ballet The Red Shoes. Like her character in the ballet, she is irresistibly drawn to dancing. Her life becomes split between her simple human passion and artistic devotion to her profession. The film contains ballet sequences of stylistic mastery, and is visually one of the most innovative and beautiful works of cinema ever created.


“Blending impressionist art and expressionist film, blurring the barriers between theatre and cinema, body and camera, reality and dream, drawing equally on the avant-garde and the classical.” – Time Out


“The film is voluptuous in its beauty and passionate in its storytelling. You don’t watch it, you bathe in it.” – Roger Ebert
