TORONTO’S ROYAL CINEMA TURNS BACK THE CLOCK WITH “HAIR” & “SHAMPOO” ON JANUARY 28 & 29

“HAIR” and “SHAMPOO”, two classic films from the 1970’s, have been re-coloured and restored, and the Royal Cinema, 608 College Street, will be showing the two of them on its big screen come January 28th and 29th.

BLOUIN Art Info – “maybe 4 decades have gone by, but “Hair” seems to be a story as fresh as it was when first released. The 1979 anti-war drama film was based on the 1968 Broadway musical “Hair: An American Tribal Love-Rock Musical”.

The musical, complete with a controversial nude scene, played at TORONTO’s Royal Alexandra Theatre for more than a record-breaking year.

“SHAMPOO” is a 1975 satirical comedy-drama film directed by Hal Ashby and written by Robert Towne and Warren Beatty. It stars Warren Beatty, Goldie Hawn, Julie Christie, Lee Grant, Jack Warden, Tony Bill, and Carrie Fisher who debuted with this film.
