SHNEI KUNI LEMEL (THE FLYING MATCHMAKER)
What better way to spend Chanukah and Christmas Day than to sing along with Mike Burstyn and friends in Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of this Legendary Israeli Classic!
So bring a lunch bag of latkes, sufganiyot or Chinese food, because you DON'T want to miss this event!
Q&A with MIKE BURSTYN in person!
Dont miss this rare screening of the 1966 classic film that marked Mike Burstyns first starring role at just 19! Featuring some of the greatest music in Israeli film history, Burstyn demonstrates his enormous acting and singing talents in this newly restored digital version.
Set in the world of the Eastern European shtetl, Burstyn masterfully plays a double role in this hilarious farce. Reb Kalman is hired to find a match for the daughter of
the wealthy Reb Pinchas, who is determined to prevent her from marrying her tutor, Max (Mike Burstyn). Reb Kalman finds Kuni Lemel (also Burstyn), who looks exactly like Max, except that Kuni limps, stutters and has only one good eye. Max plans to impersonate Kuni so that Reb Pinchas will marry his daughter to Max by mistake. But when the real Kuni Lemel shows up, everyone is confused.
