“Freaky Friday”? Give us a break. “S.W.A.T.”? You’re taking your chances with that one. Why not go see something really entertaining this weekend.
The Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde Rock ‘N Roll Musical is having midnight screenings this weekend (August 8-9) at the Laemmle’s Sunset 5.
Non-animated musicals are scarce these days (I’ll leave it to the reader to determine whether that’s a Good Thing or not), and while I don’t see “Jekyll and Hyde” sparking some kind of revival in the genre, it’s a refreshing take on an old story. It recalls classic horror films, while at the same time paying homage to the twilight years of the Hollywood musical.
