We are thrilled to be showing the wonderful film version of Cole Porter’s Kiss me Kate, his musical parody of Taming of the Shrew, fully restored and in its original 3D format.

The script remains great fun, as are the lead performances by Howard Keel and Kathyrn Grayson as the bickering central couple. The songs, including Too Darn Hot and Always True to you in my Fashion, are classic Porter, but the film saves its biggest guns for the end: the brilliant Brush Up Your Shakespeare and the show-stopping finale, From this Moment On, choreographed and danced by a young Bob Fosse!
