Dirs. Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly. 1952, 103 mins. DCP. With Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds. Donen and Kelly’s satirical look at Hollywood at the cusp of the sound era is simply the most joyous experience one could ever have going to the movies. With its super-saturated colors, nonstop belly laughs, playlist of repurposed classic tunes, and, of course, dazzling display of fabulous footwork—including O’Connor’s show-stopping “Make ’em Laugh,” Kelly’s iconic titular tune, and the epic, eye-popping “Broadway Melody” number—Singin’ in the Rain is a blast of color and music. Recommended for ages 6+
