 Travel back in time to 1950's New York! We will watch the documentary "John Hemmer and the Showgirls". Told through the personal artistic journey of retired singer John Hemmer, this documentary chronicles a unique period in live entertainment history.

John and his fellow entertainers, all of whom performed during America’s nightclub heyday of the 1950s and ‘60s, offer a behind the scenes peek into the era like no other.
And despite life’s challenges along the way, Hemmer and his band of showgirls continue to resurrect the famed Latin Quarter nightclub’s legacy and in doing so discover renewed purpose.
