As Nazism rises in Germany, flamboyant American Sally Bowles (played by Liza Minnelli) sings in a decadent nightclub and falls in love with a British language teacher—whom she shares with a gay German baron. But Sally’s carefree and tolerant cabaret world is about to be crushed under the boot of the Nazis as Berlin becomes a trap from which Sally’s German friends will not escape.

Watch Minnelli in the classic film Cabaret (1972, 123 minutes, English, no subtitles), which won Academy Awards for Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Sound, Best Original Song Score and Adaptation, and Best Film Editing—a record for the most Oscars earned by a film not honored for Best Picture.

The film will be screened in person in the Museum’s Edmond J. Safra Hall. Tickets are $5 each for Museum members or $10 each for the general public. If you’re not a member, join today. If you’re already a member, log in and the member discount will be reflected in your cart.

Hosted in partnership with Senior Programming Consultant Nancy Collet, founder of Cinema Collet.
