SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

Part of Welcome Weekend at the PFS Bourse
Join the Philadelphia Film Society as we welcome cinephiles back to the movies at our new venue, the PFS Bourse Theater, with a weekend of curated films celebrating the magic of the movie musical the way they should be presented, on the big screen!
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. Set during the advent of “talkies,” this film’s classic song-and-dance numbers celebrate the beginning of movie musicals.
Cast: Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Jean Hagen
