Just like that, we enter the wild and decadent world of Weimar Germany. Bob Fosse’s unforgettable musical story follows the Kit Kat Klub and the drama that unfolds as the Nazi regime rises to power.

“Cabaret” swept the Academy Awards winning eight Oscars, including Best Director, Best Actress and Best Music. It lost Best Picture to “The Godfather.”

You can watch this Oscar-winning classic online right now.
