Belt it out at this special sing-along screening of one of the most beloved movie musicals of all time. Filled with unforgettable characters, irresistible hits, and stunning set pieces, Norman Jewison's adaptation of the hit Broadway musical won three Academy Awards, two Golden Globes, and a million hearts. Set in a Ukrainian village in 1905, Fiddler on the Roof follows Tevye the Dairyman (Topol, reviving his legendary London stage role) as he musically deals with poverty, the prejudice of non-Jews, and the romantic entanglements of his five daughters. Based on a short story by Sholem Aleichem and featuring an iconic music score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, Fiddler on the Roof is a timeless, heartwarming masterpiece propelled by the universal theme of "tradition."
