Singin’ (Hopefully Not In the Rain)

Movies on the Plaza returns to Albuquerque’s Civic Plaza with a Hollywood classic. On Friday, Aug. 18, there will be a screening of 1952’s Singin’ in the Rain. Arguably the greatest musical Hollywood ever produced, the film stars Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds. Amid the boisterous song-and-dance numbers, a silent film production company tries to make the rocky transition to sound. Admission is, of course, free. Some seating is available, but moviegoers are welcome to bring portable seats, blankets and lawn chairs. The film will start at dusk (around 8:15pm). Show up earlier in the evening (starting at 6pm) to purchase food from the Pueblo Harvest Cafe and listen to music by the Silver String Band. Ironically, the screening is subject to cancellation due to inclement weather.
