Sunday, February 20, 2022 – 4:00PM to 5:30PM
MAURICE HINES: BRING THEM BACK is a portrait of the charismatic song-and-dance man Maurice Hines, following him from his tap-dancing childhood to today. Maurice and friends—Chita Rivera, Mercedes Ellington, and Debbie Allen—tell tales from his seven-decade career, including Broadway shows, a co-starring role in Francis Ford Coppola’s THE COTTON CLUB, and his loving yet complex relationship with his superstar brother, the late Gregory Hines. Ever battling the challenges of being a gay, black man in show biz, Maurice shares his story with humor and grace.
Pre-Show includes a brief discussion on LBGTQ+ aging.
Q&A with director/producer John Carluccio and writer/producer Tracy E. Hopkins to follow the film.
All ticket holders are invited to a reception at Montclair Film’s Cinema505 (505 Bloomfield Ave.) immediately following the Q&A.
