New digital restoration! Part of the Earshot Jazz Festival

A grandiose revue classic, starring Paul Whiteman and his orchestra, the Russell Markert girls (later to become the Rockettes), and featuring two notable firsts: Bing Crosby’s first film appearance, and the first cartoon sequence ever animated in Technicolor.

Bouncing freely between musical numbers, narrative, and dazzling dance sequences, King of Jazz makes an extravagant use of Technicolor that often borders on the absurd. Take a seat for a joyful, exuberant walk through the history of jazz, movie magic, and the glamor in between.

Co-presented with Northwest Film Forum
