Re-run Theater: Soul Train Express Plus

The Hollywood Theatre’s monthly tribute to the orange-hued, fuzzy-edged, polyester glories of classic television turns up like a mutha tonight as they pay tribute to the legend Don Cornelius and the show he hosted for over 20 years, Soul Train. Tonight’s program features two straight hours of Soul Train’s finest performances, including Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Sly and the Family Stone, James Brown, Ike & Tina, and a whole lot more. And just to keep the train moving at top velocity, Re-run Theater will be peppering the program with vintage soul videos from people like Prince and The Gap Band. The Hollywood’s got some pretty wide aisles—don’t be surprised if you see a bunch of people cutting that rug all night long. Or maybe... join in? BOBBY ROBERTS
