Few 1980s films have the star power of White Nights, which pairs legends Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines as dancing defectors brought together behind the Iron Curtain by Cold War–era intrigue. Helen Mirren and Isabella Rossellini costar, Twyla Tharp contributed choreography, and the film spawned two hit songs: the Phil Collins/Marilyn Martin duet “Separate Lives” and Lionel Richie’s Oscar-winning “Say You, Say Me.” See this cult classic on the big screen! (136 mins., 4K DCP)
