The ALL ARTS broadcast channel and streaming app have plenty of arts-related shows and films to choose from, including original productions and archival content.

This week, we’re paying tribute to the fan-favorite program “Hollywood Singing in Dancing,” a 13-part documentary series that takes audiences through the history of Hollywood musicals. The episodes feature memorable interviews with stars and those working behind the scenes bring Tinseltown to life.

The series begins its journey through movie musical history in the 1920s when sound crackled onto the big screen, ushering in the “talkies” era. The films wind their way through Hollywood’s toe-tapping Golden Age, the iconoclastic ’70s and ’80s, and end at the start of the 21st century.

As always, you can watch the following list of features online or on the ALL ARTS app wherever you may stream. Be sure to tune in to the ALL ARTS broadcast channel Nov. 7 for a “Hollywood Singing and Dancing” marathon.
