(103 min) 1927 Hollywood. Monumental Pictures’ biggest stars, glamorous on-screen couple Lina Lamont and Don Lockwood, are also an off-screen couple if the trade papers and gossip columns are to be believed. One of the greatest and most successful musicals ever filmed, Singin’ in the Rain is filled with memorable songs and lavish dance routines that have wowed audiences over many decades. It tells of the struggles that silent film actors face during the “advent” of talkies: talentless starlets, Hollywood schemes, and love stories.

 

2017-2018 NEWS-GAZETTE FILM SERIES
Join us one Saturday each month as we screen the most beloved classic films of all time. Virginia Theatre organist David Schroeder performs on the Virginia’s historic Wurlitzer Pipe Organ at most News- Gazette screenings.  NEW this year: before each 7pm News-Gazette film, take a trip back in time with a short sing-a-long with David at the Wurlitzer and our historic glass slides as your guide! The Virginia Theatre houses one of the largest collections in the country of these unique glass slides, each set printed with the lyrics to a classic tune from days gone by. Warm up your pipes and bring the whole family!
