Chinese Culture Center Cinema (C4) is happy to present “Forbidden City” (1989). San Francisco’s internationally renowned Forbidden City was the nation’s premiere all-Chinese nightclub in the swinging 1930s and the big band era of the ’40s. This revealing documentary looks at the history of Charlie Low’s nightclub and some of the most accomplished and spirited musicians and dancers of their time, and shows a generation of Asian American pioneers who fought cultural barriers and racism to pursue their love of American song and dance.

This is an English language film, and is 76 minutes long.
