Quite splendid.

Film Screening Singing in the Rain Part of the Young at Heart Festival
Especially for the Young at Heart Festival, we’re showing this classic movie on the big screen. So come along and reminisce while enjoying the fabulous soundtrack through our sound system.It’s 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 studio’s attempts to make their own talkie turn disastrous, it’s down to Don, his songwriter best friend Cosmo (Donald O’Connor) 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.
Time: 7.30pm Tickets: £6.00
