It’s historic. Never before has the brilliant Hollywood choreographer’s cinema output been compiled in a single, curated exhibition. The rare opportunity to grasp and assess the entirety of Cole’s talent and influence is in store for New York audiences from January 20 through February 4, 2016. Over the course of two weeks, 18 films (most screened twice, several precious prints) will be projected on the big screen of the Museum of Modern Art Department of Film in “All That Jack (Cole).”

    I’m coming from Los Angeles expressly to attend this exciting retrospective of Jack Coles’s films and his contribution to dance. I was friend of Jack’s for twenty-two years and this recognition of his titanic talents is long overdue and very welcome. Jack helped shape an important element of my professional life. I’ll be attending the event with Barrie Chase, also a longtime friend and presenter. Is there a package price for those of us who will be be attending multiple events during this retrospective?
