The Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center, along with Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky, are happy to announce the Lyric Theatre’s Summer Film Series. This free film series will take a nostalgic look back at a variety of films defining different eras in African American cinema. From the musical styling of Lena Horne in the 1943 classic ‘Stormy Weather’ to the comedic styling of Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier in 1975′s ‘A Piece of the Action’, the films in this series serve to both entertain and also provide a chance for a younger generation to participate in the movie-going experience and culture of times past.
THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
The dedicated but tyrannical Joe Clark is appointed the principal of a decaying inner-city school that he is determined to improve.
An arrogant and unorthodox teacher returns as principal to the idyllic high school from which he had earlier been fired to find it a den of drug abuse, gang violence, and urban despair. Eventually his successful but unorthodox methods lead to a clash with city officials that threatens to undo all his efforts. Based on a true story. Written by Keith Lohn
