It’s the classic story of Broadway.  Peggy, the small town girl, leaves the sanctity of family to pursue her dreams in New York.  While keeping the big city wolves at bay, she befriends the working class of the theater world – the chorus – and lands a part on the line in the newest play Pretty Lady.  But Broadway is full of heroes and villains on-and-off the stage, and Peggy encounters them all on her way to eventual stardom.

Filled with the biggest show-stopping tap numbers on Broadway, 42nd Street is a true spectacle with its gorgeous 1930s costumes, beautiful sets and hit-after-hit including “We’re in the Money, “Lullaby of Broadway,”  “Shuffle Off to Buffalo,” and of course the title number “42nd Street,” all performed by the Paramount’s full orchestra.

Rated G.

Runtime: 2 hours and 20 minutes (includes 15-minute intermission)
