Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Dave Karger, MUSICAL MATINEE is a weekly series of films, where music plays an important part in the storytelling. "I have a song in my head from the moment I wake up until I go to bed at night," said Dave Karger. "Movies and music are my two passions, and they have always been intertwined to me. If we can give everyone a dose of music to start off their weekend, that's a good thing!" Delections of MUSICAL MATINEE include:
