Singin’ in the Rain

Everyone’s favourite musical from 1952. Starring Debbie Reynolds, Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor, the film shows how a silent film production company and cast make a difficult transition to sound in the rise of the talkies. Described as “perhaps the most enjoyable of movie musicals” by Pauline Kael in the New York, it frequently features on many best movie lists.

Tickets available about a month before the film. A suggested donation of £5 gets you refreshments and a raffle ticket.
