Singin' in the Rain

70th Anniversary Screening, featuring an introduction by Glenn Kenny

When the transition is being made from silent films to “talkies,” everyone has trouble adapting. Don (Gene Kelly) and Lina (Jean Hagen) have been cast repeatedly as a romantic couple, but when their latest film is remade into a musical, only Don has the voice for the new singing part. After a lot of practice with a diction coach, Lina still sounds terrible, and Kathy (Debbie Reynolds), a bright young aspiring actress, is hired to record over her voice.

Presented on 35mm

Glenn Kenny is a film critic who writes for The New York Times, RogerEbert.com, The Boston Globe, and the Criterion Collection among others. He is the author of the book Made Men: The Story of Goodfellas.
