Bye Bye Birdie screening

Critics' pick
Bye Bye Birdie

While away an afternoon at LACMA's Tuesday matinee series and catch this classic musical for a steal: General admission is only $4! George Sidney's adaptation of popular stage musical Bye Bye Birdie may rub some the wrong way, but the songs in this 1963 gemwhich extol the importance of everything from "going steady" to appearing on Ed Sullivanwill lodge themselves into your head for a while. The candy-colored story of Elvis-esque teen heartthrob Conrad Birdie and a small-town girl features an impressive cast, with Dick Van Dyke and Janet Leigh as standout supporting characters.
