The Red Shoes

A film by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger Starring Moira Shearer, Marius Goring, Anton Walbrook

Dazzling new 35mm restoration!

A glorious Technicolor epic that influenced generations of filmmakers, artists, and aspiring ballerinas, THE RED SHOES intricately weaves backstage life with the thrill of performance. A young ballerina (Moira Shearer) is torn between two forces: the composer who loves her (Marius Goring), and the impresario determined to fashion her into a great dancer (Anton Walbrook).
