“Hello, Dolly!” will return to the big screen for a special anniversary screening at Bainbridge Cinemas at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14.
The 1969 romantic comedy musical, based on the Broadway production of the same name, was directed by Gene Kelly and stars Barbra Streisand, Walter Matthau, Michael Crawford, Danny Lockin, Tommy Tune, Fritz Feld, Marianne McAndrew, E. J. Peaker and Louis Armstrong (whose recording of the title tune had become a No. 1 single in May 1964).
The story follows Dolly Levi, a strong-willed matchmaker who travels to Yonkers, New York in order to find a match for the miserly “well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder. In doing so, she convinces his niece, his niece’s intended, and Horace’s two clerks to travel to New York.
Released in December of 1969 by 20th Century Fox, the film won three Academy Awards (for Best Art Direction, Best Score of a Musical Picture and Best Sound) and was nominated for a further four, including Best Picture.
