Another Classic Graces the Silver Screen …

Happy Monday all and sundry!

As I was watching TCM, I saw that TCM is teaming up with Fathom Events again. Most recently we were treated to classics Casablanca and To Kill a Mockingbird and now, in honor of the 60th anniversary of its release we have a chance to catch Singin’ in the Rain on the big screen.

The musical comedy stars Gene Kelly (who also received co-director credit with Stanley Donen), Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor and chronicles the struggles a silent film company and cast encounter as they make the difficult transition from silent motion pictures to sound.

This one time event takes place on July 12th, 2012 at select theaters (tickets go on sale 6/8). Be sure to check the Fathom Events website for event locations.

  1. I’m actually surprised this is being sold more on the back of the success of THE ARTIST, though as long as people go who cares? This is one of my favourite musicals – but then, to misquote Lina Lamont, isn’t it everybody’s?

    • Yeah I think the target demo are folks who have no idea what Singin in the Rain is all about.
      And then those of us who know the film but would like to see it on the big screen is somewhat residual.

  2. Desperately want to go but I have tickets to something else that same day (the fickle finger of fate). Hopefully it’ll be as big a smash as Casablanca and they’ll extend it.
