Classic Movie Afternoon

Thursday May 30, 2:00 - 4:00 pm

Classic Movie AfternoonJoin us for a viewing of Singin' in the Rain (1952, Rated G, Run Time: 104 minutes) 

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.

Trivia led by Nancy will follow the movie and popcorn will be served. Registration is not required.
