SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

Directed by Gene Kelly
Starring Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds & Donald O’Connor

(1952, Gene Kelly & Stanley Donen) The switch to talkies proves a smooth one for silent swashbuckler Gene Kelly, but the nasal screech of perennial co-star Jean Hagen (“a shimmering, glowing star in the cinema firm-a-ment!”) calls for dubbing by Debbie Reynolds, while Donald O’Connor literally knocks himself out to “make ‘em laugh.” Betty Comden & Adolph Green took the early talkie songs of Nacio Herb Brown and producer Arthur Freed to script the Citizen Kane of movie musicals. In dazzlingly restored color! DCP. Approx. 102 mins.
12:30, 4:40, 8:50

“PULSES WITH LIFE! In a movie about making movies, you can sense the joy they had making this one…Remains one of the few movies to live up to its advertising. ‘What a glorious feeling!’ the posters said. It was the simple truth.”
– Roger Ebert

“If you’ve never seen it and don’t, you’re bonkers.”
– Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York

“One of the shining glories of the American musical. A celebration of movement as emotion.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

THE BAND WAGON

Directed by Vincente Minnelli
Starring Fred Astaire 

(1953) Washed-up Hollywood song-and-dance man Fred Astaire aims for a Broadway comeback – thanks to a socko script by Comden & Green stand-ins Nanette Fabray and Oscar Levant – but battles with artsy director Jack Buchanan – as well as chilly co-star Cyd Charisse, until the two find themselves “dancing in the dark” in Central Park. Add Fred’s “Shine on Your Shoes” routine in a 42nd Street arcade, the hilarious “Triplets,” the Spillane-spoofing “Girl Hunt Ballet,” still more great songs by Dietz & Schwartz, and a scintillating C&G screenplay. Now That’s Entertainment! DCP. Approx. 112 mins.
