I've seen it over 100 times. forgot how grand the big screen is
They just don’t make them like that anymore!!! Very fun!!!
So much better on the big screen! Loved it!
Great on the big screen! Look for Michael Crawford, 20 years before he became Phantom of the Opera!
Even better on the big screen.
Great movie on the big screen
Streisand was awesome! The score and choreography were over the top! I had never seen on the big screen before.
Nothing like seeing it on the big screen!!
What an incredibly beautiful film! The cast was outstanding and Barbra Streisand was just perfect in acting & voice! Hope they release ON A CLEAR DAY back onto the screens in 2020!
Amazing movie each time I see it. Thanks for putting it up on the big screen.
This was one of the last big production musicals. Babs and Walter were excellent, as usual. Fantastic on the big screen. Noticed the asphalt leading up to the church in the wedding scene. Lol
Dolly lost a fortune and helped to all but kill the genre, yet this famed musical adaptation of Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker is more fun than its rep indicates. [15 Nov 2005, p.8D]
The choreography, the performances, the set decoration, the dialogue, everything about Hello, Dolly! is played directly to the back row of the theater, which would be fine on the stage, but on anamorphic widescreen close-ups tends to be more frightening than mirthful.
By the time Streisand takes over the entire movie with the title number, in which the massive waitstaff of an upscale restaurant gathers to sing and dance her praises, I couldn’t help but wonder what all the fuss was about.
