    Their small Georgia town has fallen on hard times and is counting on the church choir to lift everyone's spirits by winning the national Joyful Noise Competition.

(Parton) wants to shake things up in a big way!

  • Tim Burton and Johnny Depp: two legendary talents team again. The director and star of five remarkable films (including Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) now add a razor-sharp sixth with this gripping thriller based on Stephen Sondheim’s worldwide stage sensation. 

    This tale of a 19th-century London barber with revenge on his mind and a blade in his hand has it all: blood, mystery, romance, wit, exhilarating music and stunning visual design. Co-stars Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman and Sacha Baron Cohen add more menace to the masterpiece as Sweeney’s partner and victims in crime. Need a shave? A close shave? Sweeney’s waiting.

  • A comedy, a love story and a cult classic starring a giant singing plant from outer space — what else could it be but Little Shop of Horrors? 

    The 1986 film has a surprisingly complex history; it began as a short story, then became a low-budget film, before turning into an Off-Broadway play, when finally Frank Oz and his team created this quirky, screen version. Many fans do not know that this adaptation originally had a far more sinister ending, which everyone can now see in the additional Director’s Cut of the film included in this special edition package.

  • Seven classes a day and a hot lunch. That’s what New York City’s High School for the Performing Arts guarantees. Stardom? That’s something the school’s teenage musicians, actors, dancers and dreamers strive for. Fame sings the body electric, celebrating the growing-up process of honing talent, confronting realities, finding love, living life. 

    Director Alan Parker (Evita, The Commitments) brings an energetic style to the criss-crossing stories of students (including future Academy Award® winner Irene Cara, Paul McCrane (ER), Barry Miller (Saturday Night Fever) and two who returned in the later TV series, Gene Anthony Ray and Lee Curreri). Nominated for six Academy Awards®, Fame won Oscars® for its dynamic score and title tune.

  • The legend of King Arthur has enchanted generation after generation. His pure, perfect kingdom was shattered because of the tragic passion between Queen Guenevere and the Round Table’s bravest knight Lancelot. Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe shaped that saga into the 1960 musical Camelot.

    Seven years later, the stage hit became a triple Academy Award® -winner with glowing performances by Richard Harris, Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero and a glistening score. This remastered edition delivers a revitalised picture and remixed Dolby Digital sound. Experience anew the melodic romance of that “one brief shining moment” known as Camelot.

  • Singing with the showbiz sass of its Jule Styne/Stephen Sondheim score, the film version of the Broadway hit Gypsy takes you on a grand vaudeville tour. 

    It sweeps you up in the roller-coaster relationship of Louise (Natalie Wood), the wallflower later to blossom into sophisticated stripper Gypsy Rose Lee, and her ambitious mother, Rose (Rosalind Russell, whose performance won her a fifth Best Actress Golden Globe® Award). Karl Malden scores as Herbie, the salesman who falls for Rose – to his exasperation. Full of terrific tunes (Everything’s Coming Up Roses, Small World and Some People among them), Gypsy will certainly entertain you and definitely make you smile.

  • The rich are generally different. But in matters of the heart, they’re just as scatterbrained as the rest of us. Heiress Tracy Lord (Grace Kelly) is engaged to one man (John Lund), attracted to another (Frank Sinatra) and, just maybe, in love again with her ex-husband (Bing Crosby) in this effervescent musical reinvention of Philip Barry’s play The Philadelphia Story featuring an endlessly delightful Cole Porter score. 

    Among High Society’s high points: Sinatra and Celeste Holm ask Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Crosby and Kelly share True Love, Der Bingle and Ol’ Blue Eyes swing-swing-swingle Well, Did You Evah? and Crosby and Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong jive with Now You Has Jazz. Yes, indeedy, we has!
