The Producers (12A) 50th Anniversary Restoration at Ely Cinema - cabaret-style seating
Fifty years later, "One of the funniest movies ever made." - Roger Ebert. Special screening includes recorded intro.
The Producers (12A) at Ely Cinema (105 minutes)
Director: Mel Brooks. Stars: Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder. 1967. 88 mins. English, and German with English subtitles.
A washed-up showbiz mogul deliberately produces an abhorrent musical on the advice of his accountant, who reveals that, in the right circumstances, a producer could make more money with a flop than a hit. The new show, ‘Springtime for Hitler’, is a disaster waiting to happen. Unfortunately, everybody loves it. Fifty years, a hit Broadway musical and a remake later, Mel Brooks’ original version of The Producers is still as fresh and anarchic as ever. Contains moderate strong language and sex references.
