Singin' in the Rain

Dirs. Stanley Donen, Gene Kelly | USA 1952 | 103 mins | U

One of the most-loved and influential film musicals of all time, Singin’ in the Rain came at a time when Hollywood was making the difficult transition from silent film production to sound.

For those who don't know, Singin' in the Rain is one of the supreme originals - it wasn't originally a book and the subsequent stage show was inspired by the film rather than the other way around.

Never, in the whole history of American cinema, has such a collection of talents come together at the peak of their abilities to generate such an enjoyable and clever movie. Gene Kelly’s (co-director with Stanley Donen) joyous rendition of the title song stands as a lasting tribute to the star and remains an iconic cinema moment. In all these years not a frame of it has dated. It still retains all its freshness and sparkle. And there’s so much more to savour here too beyond those well known sequences. All of which makes Singin' in the Rain probably the most treasured musical in the history of cinema. And certainly well worth braving the weather for.

Tickets: £6.00 adult / £5.00 concession
