MOZART MOVIE: The California Theatre screens the 1984 Mozart biopic in honor of its 35th anniversary.

When it comes to musical biopics, few films loom larger than Amadeus. The 1984 Academy Award-winning film made a rock star of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart—one of the most talented composers of the Classical period (between the Baroque and Romantic periods). Painting Mozart as an eccentric and irreverent genius, the film weaves together elements of palace intrigue, jealousy and revenge into a fictionalized history of the Austrian musician. In partnership with Cinequest, Opera San Jose celebrates the 35th anniversary of the film with this screening in their downtown venue, the California Theatre.
