Cinema d’Arte with APEX Arts League – Bathtubs Over Broadway

Step into a world where the spotlight shines on the most unlikely of stages with the APEX Arts League and Southlake Public Library’s exclusive screening event featuring the critically acclaimed documentary, Bathtubs Over Broadway.

This captivating film follows the journey of Steve Young, a comedy writer for the Late Show with David Letterman, who uncovers a treasure trove of vintage records. These aren’t just any records; they’re a gateway to a bygone era where corporations like General Electric and McDonald’s took center stage in elaborate, Broadway-style musical productions, reserved for eyes and ears “internal use only.”

As Steve delves deeper into this forgotten world, he not only finds rare albums and unseen footage but also forges unexpected bonds with the original composers and performers. His odyssey reveals that these corporate musicals, once hidden away and featuring everything from tractors to bathtubs, were indeed a phenomenon larger than Broadway itself.

Join us for an evening that promises more than just a film; it’s an experience complete with delectable appetizers, sumptuous desserts, and a curated selection of beverages. And yes, wine enthusiasts, we’ve got you covered. This event is a toast to the arts, history, and the joy of discovery, reserved for those 21 and older.

Don’t miss this unique blend of film, fun, and culinary delights. It’s not just a night at the movies—it’s a journey through the quirky and wonderful world of corporate America’s musical past.
