Cinema Screening

“One of MGM’s biggest, cheeriest musicals. Astaire and garland are a most engaging screen couple. The uplifting Irving Berlin score is first-rate and used to perfection.” – Guide for the Film Fanatic

Strolling along 5th Avenue or going on the burn as A Couple of Swells, Judy Garland and Fred Astaire lead a parade of music (17 Irving Berlin tunes and an Academy Award-winning adaption score arranged by Johnny Green and Roger Edens) and gotta-dance fun (including Astaire’s Drum Crazy) in this never-ending delight co-starring Ann Miller (performing a knockout Shakin’ the Blues Away) and Peter Lawford (gamely crooning The Fella with the Umbrella with Garland).

Don’t let this colourful parade pass you by this Easter!
