We are looking forward to the event of the 65th anniversary of Singing in the Rain (1952). It is being marked by two movie theater showings, throughout the U S, held by TCM and Fathom Events.
On Sunday, January 15 and Wednesday, January 18, the film will be shown in its big screen glory at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (local time)
“Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Warner Bros. Entertainment are thrilled to present a special two-day event, Singin’ in the Rain 65th Anniversary, in select cinemas nationwide on Sunday, January 15 and Wednesday, January 18. The event also includes exclusive commentary from Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz, who will give insight into this classic film.”
Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor star in one of the greatest musicals ever filmed. Musician Don Lockwood (Kelly) rises to stardom during Hollywood’s silent-movie era–paired with the beautiful, jealous and dumb Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen). When Lockwood becomes attracted to young studio singer Kathy Selden (Reynolds), Lamont has her fired. But with the introduction of talking pictures, audiences laugh when they hear Lockwood speak for the first time–and the studio uses Selden to dub her voice.
This is also a great way to salute the late Debbie Reynolds and honor her great career!
Upcoming events this year will include a showing of Some Like it Hot.
This film will be shown in the same aspect ratio as when it was originally released in cinemas.
What a treat for any lover of classic cinema to be shown in pristine prints on the big screen. We hope you will support these events.
