30th Anniversary of THE ROSE


Friday, September 25th at 7:30 p.m.

30th Anniversary of THE ROSE (1979)

With special guests Bette Midler and director Mark Rydell

The tour-de-force performance of Bette Midler, as a self-destructive rock star in the vein of Janis Joplin, anchors this musical film and earned Midler her first Academy Award® nomination for Best Actress. Set in 1969, the film follows singer Mary Rose Foster (“The Rose”) on her final tour, through numerous highs (both figurative and literal) and lows, and features several electric concert performances. The title song by Amanda McBroom has become a classic; both Alan Bates and Oscar® nominee Frederic Forrest deliver outstanding supporting performances.

Cast Bette Midler (Rose), Alan Bates (Rudge), Frederic Forrest (Dyer), Harry Dean Stanton (Billy Ray), Barry Primus (Dennis), David Keith (Mal), Sandra McCabe (Sarah), Will Hare (Mr. Leonard), Rudy Bond (Monty), Don Calfa (Don Frank), James Keane (Dealer), Doris Roberts (Rose’s Mother).
