SINGING IN THE RAIN (1952)
General Admission Tickets: $7
THE NEWS-GAZETTE FILM SERIES
The award-winning classic 1952 American musical romantic comedy directed and choreographed by Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen, starring Kelly, Donald O'Connor, and Debbie Reynolds.
When the transition is being made from silent films to `talkies', everyone has trouble adapting. Don and Lina have been cast repeatedly as a romantic couple, but when their latest film is remade into a musical, only Don has the voice for the new singing part. After a lot of practice with a diction coach, Lina still sounds terrible, and Kathy, a bright young aspiring actress, is hired to record over her voice.
Doors open 45min prior to showtime.
