16th September 2020 - 18th September 2020
To celebrate Heritage weeks this year we are opening our beautiful building for guests to enjoy a short talk on the history of The Old Savoy and then to be our guests and sit back and enjoy a screening of Singin’ in the Rain a comedy, romance, great musical numbers, stars at their best and a fond recreation of a bygone moviemaking era: Singin’ in the Rain has so much that it ranked a lofty 10th on the American Film Institute’s 100 Best American Films list. “Gotta dance!”; sings star and co-director Gene Kelly. But the imperative of the film’s storyline is gotta talk! Silents are giving way to Talkies – and a hoofer-turned-matinee-idol (Kelly) is caught in that bumpy transition, as well as his buddy (Donald O’Connor), prospective ladylove (Debbie Reynolds) and shrewish co-star (Jean Hagen) in a hilarious Oscar-nominated performance). Singin’ in the Rain is pure singin’, dancin’, laughin’, lovin’, moviewatchin’ joy.
Cyd Charisse, Stanley Donen, Millard Mitchell, Rita Moreno, Donald Oconnor, Debbie Reynolds
