What a glorious feeling
Its 1927 in Hollywood and the stuntman-turned-matinee-idol star of Monumental Pictures, Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly), is caught in the bumpy transition from silent films to talkies.
When the studios attempts to make their own talkie turn disastrous, its down to Don, his songwriter best friend Cosmo (Donald OConnor) and ingénue love interest Kathy (Debbie Reynolds) to save the day by turning the film into a musical!
Full of classic songs like Singin in the Rain, Make Em Laugh and Good Morning, Singin In The Rain is pure singing, dancing, laughing movie-watching joy.
Featuring the finest talents and some of Hollywoods most iconic scenes Singin In The Rain is a nostalgic tribute to the Hollywood of a bygone era.
????? – ‘Truly one of the greatest musicals ever made
????? – If you’ve never seen it and don’t, you’re bonkers.’
????? – 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.
