Friday Flicks at The Varsity: Singing in the Rain
April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5 – $7
Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor star in one of the greatest and most successful musicals ever filmed, filled with memorable songs, lavish routines and Kelly’s fabulous song-and-dance number performed in the rain. Set during the advent of “talkies,” Don Lockwood has risen to stardom during Hollywood’s silent-movie era, paired with the beautiful, jealous and dumb Lina Lamont. And when Lockwood becomes attracted to young studio singer Kathy Selden, Lamont has her fired. But with the introduction of talking pictures, Lockwood finds his career in jeopardy after audiences laugh when they hear Lamont speak in her shrill voice for the first time – until the studio decides to use Selden to dub her voice. It was filmed in Technicolor to show the glamourous world of Hollywood. The film topped the AFI’s Greatest Movie Musicals list and is ranked as the fifth-greatest American Motion picture of all time in its updated list of the greatest American films in 2007. (Rated G; 1952)
The movie starts at 7. Tickets are $7 or $5 for students. They are available in advance at thevarsitycenter.eventbrite.com and at the venue when doors open; they are not available in advance at the venue. Doors and bar open at 6:30.
