"Drive-In Movies at The Rock," a week-long series at Rockefeller Center presented by Target and the Bank of America, will conclude with a screening of the behind-the-scenes Broadway documentary "Show Business."

Rockefeller Center will be converted into an old-fashioned drive-in movie theatre for the screenings, which also include David LaChapelle's "Rize" (June 14), the romantic comedy "The Baxter" (June 15) and Rosanna Arquette's documentary "All We Are Saying" (June 16). Moviegoers will view the films on a 30 x 50 foot screen erected in front of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. A select group of attendees will be able to view the films while seated in Target Smart Cars, which will line the Channel Gardens off Fifth Avenue. The films are free and open to the public. Seating begins at 6 PM with the movies commencing at 9 PM. The "Show Business" film will be preceded by a performance from some of the cast members of the recent Actors' Fund presentation of Hair.

The 102-minute "Show Business" documentary, which was written by director Dori Berinstein and Richard Hankin, follows four Broadway musicals from inception through the 2004 Tony Awards. The musicals include Wicked, the hit Stephen Schwartz musical at the Gershwin Theatre; Avenue Q, the Tony-winning musical at the Golden Theatre; Taboo, the short-lived Boy George musical produced on Broadway by Rosie O'Donnell; and Caroline, or Change, the much acclaimed musical by Tony Kushner and Jeanine Tesori, which was directed by George C. Wolfe.
