Description

WED JAN 1 *Double Feature* SINGIN' IN THE RAIN 2:00, 6:30 Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds dance up a storm in what is perhaps the greatest movie musical of all time. Directed by Kelly and Stanley Donen, they spoof the transitional period in ?lm from silents to talkies as concocted by the matchless writing team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green, plus MGM’s catalog of Arthur Freed-Nacio Herb Brown songs. Jean Hagen, Cyd Charisse, and Rita Moreno co-star. (1952, 103 min, DCP) + THE APARTMENT 4:00, 8:30 4K Restoration! Fresh off Some Like It Hot, Billy Wilder and Jack Lemmon re-teamed for this darkly comic morality tale about a go-getter insurance clerk who, in trying to get ahead, lends out his apartment to his adulterous boss (Fred MacMurray). Trouble starts when the gal he has fallen for turns out to be the boss’ mistress (Shirley MacLaine). Clearly an inspiration for “Mad Men,” the ?lm won 5 Oscars, including Best Picture and Director. (1960, 125 min, 4K DCP ‘Scope)
