Singin’ In The Rain
Saturday 24th April 2021, Doors open 6.30pm for 7pm start
Isle of Man Cinema – Movie Musicals Season 2021.
Beloved since the moment it premiered, Singin’ In The Rain was ranked as the fifth greatest motion picture of all time in 2007.
With ‘The Jazz Singer’ premiere making Hollywood frantic, the studios are forced to suddenly change all the movie-making rules at once, to accommodate sound. In doing so, they leave silent pictures – and some of their stars – behind. Monumental Studios are suddenly faced with a problem…their star, Lina Lamont, can’t sing, and can’t even really talk. Enter Kathy Selden, an aspiring actress whose dulcet tones are able to cover Lina Lamont’s – calling into question what it means to act, how credit is distributed, and what it means to get a fair shake in the movie business.
Singin’ in the Rain includes some of the best-loved comedy routines, dance numbers, and love songs ever written, including “Good Mornin’,” “Make ‘em Laugh,” and – of course – the show-stopping dance number, “Singin’ in the Rain.” With comedy, romance, and great musical numbers, Singin’ in the Rain is pure singin’, dancin’, laughin’, lovin’, moviewatchin’ joy.
Running Time: 98 minutes
