Summer Film Series: Singin' in the Rain (1952)

This year’s outdoor film series features three of our favorite musical films from across the decades. All films begin at sundown on Alexander Beach.  

Singin’ in the Rain (1952) 

103 minutes, G; directed by Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly 

This classic film is a spoof of the turmoil that afflicted the movie industry in the late 1920s, when movies went from silent to sound. When two silent movie stars' latest movie is made into a musical, a chorus girl is brought in to dub Lina Lamont's speaking and singing. Don Lockwood is on top of the world until Lina finds out. Rain date: Tuesday, July 12, in Butler Amphitheater.
