Free Movie in Houston: Michael Jackson’s This is It – June 10

Grab some friends and come out to Miller Outdoor Theatre to see the Michael Jackson movie tribute Michael Jackson’s “This is It”. On the vast, half-empty, often darkened proscenium of the Staples Center in Los Angeles, we see him in bare-bones videotaped rehearsals for the 50 London concerts that he never lived to perform.  In this setting, Jackson moves lightly and easily, with his herky-jerky demon-marionette grace. On the rare occasions when he’s not focused on dance moves and has nothing to do but sing, as in a soaring interlude of ”Human Nature” or a version of ”I Want You Back” that he tosses off with affection for his child-superstar pluck, the music pours out of him like sunlight. From the moment he takes the stage, he’s loose, robust, and in control. Maybe a little too in control. In the relative privacy of these rehearsal sessions, which took place from March of this year until his death on June 25, Jackson comes off as his friends have often described him — as a gentle, sweet, but very shrewd soul who was also a painful perfectionist.

All this takes place on Friday, June 10 at 8:30 p.m. Miller Outdoor Theater is located at 6000 Hermann Park Dr.
