Discover Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench, as part of the ‘It’s Showtime at the AC’ series, on June 21.

It’s Showtime at the AC’ is a new series hosted by the American Cinematheque dedicated to celebrating the art form of the movie musical, in both traditional and untraditional ways. This inaugural edition of the series will take place from June 21 to June 23. It includes a showcase of rare archival 70mm prints, a directorial tribute to the legendary Bob Fosse, and an assortment of underground and classic takes on the musical, including Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench by Franco-American star writer-director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash, La La Land, First Man, Babylon).

After connecting with the shy Madeline, a jazz trumpeter named Guy embarks on a quest for a more gregarious paramour, but through a series of twists and turns punctuated by an original score, the two lovers seem destined to be together. DCP, USA, 2009, Variance Films, Drama/Musical, 82 mins, in English and French with English subtitles.
