A fiddler on the roof. Sounds crazy, no? Watching this epic and timeless big-screen adaptation of the celebrated musical is a tradition all its own. Re-live the aesthetic perfection of this boisterous Hollywood classic on the big screen. Fiddler on the Roof tells the tale of impoverished milkman Tevye, his copious unmarried daughters, and the hijinks of village matchmaking. But Tevye’s woes quickly seem quaint when his family is driven from their homeland by the violent Tzarist regime. 50 years after its original release, this Oscar-winning epic still broaches universal themes, speaking to the plight of refugees and the human longing for connection, community and love.
