Singin’ In The Rain (1952) -1pm

Directed by: Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen
Starring: Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, Donald O’Connor, Jean Hagen

“Never, in the whole history of American cinema, has such a collection of talents come together at the peak of their abilities to generate such an enjoyable and clever movie”

★★★★★ Radio Times

It’s 1927 in Hollywood and the stuntman-turned-matinee-idol star of Monumental Pictures, Don Lockwood (Kelly), is caught in the bumpy transition from silent films to talkies. When the studio’s attempts to make their own talkie turn disastrous, it’s down to Don, his songwriter best friend Cosmo (O’Connor) and ingénue love interest Kathy (Reynolds) to save the day… by turning the film into a musical!

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) – 3pm

Directed by: Jacques Demy
Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Nino Castelnuovo, Anne Vernon, Marc Michel

Geneviève (Catherine Deneuve), a beautiful young Frenchwoman who works at a small-town boutique selling umbrellas, falls for dashing mechanic Guy (Nino Castelnuovo). Their brief romance is interrupted when Guy is drafted to serve in the Algerian War, a separation that has far reaching effects on both their lives. A major influence on 2017’s hit musical La La Land.

French with English Subtitles.
