Join us for Last Remaining Seats, our series of classic films in historic theatres!
"Singin’ in the Rain" humorously depicts Hollywood’s transition from silent film to “talkies.” Gene Kelly and Jean Hagen play popular silent film stars Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont. Their studio invents a romance between the two to increase their popularity, but in reality Don has no interest in the intolerably vapid Lina.
When the studio decides to convert the pair’s next film into a talkie, the production is plagued by difficulties, the most notable of which is the interesting tone of Lina’s voice.
Enter Kathy (Debbie Reynolds), an aspiring actress who may be the answer to both Don’s professional and romantic woes.
"Singin’ in the Rain" features many hit musical numbers, including Donald O’Connor’s iconic performance of “Make “Em Laugh,” and Gene Kelley’s unforgettable rendition of the film’s centerpiece song, “Singin’ in the Rain.”
This year marks the thirtieth season of Last Remaining Seats! To celebrate, we’re showing some of the best films screened over the past three decades. We screened "Singin’ in the Rain" at the State Theatre in 1996.
