Nominated by the American Film Institute as one of the Greatest Movie Musicals and featuring Astaire’s infamous dance performances across the ceiling of a hotel room, you will love seeing this hilarious and fun classic back on the big screen.

Brother and sister dance act Tom (Fred Astaire) and Ellen Bowen (Jane Powell) finish an engagement in New York and journey to London around the time of a Royal Wedding. On board the cruise over, Ellen meets and falls in love with Lord John Brindale (Peter Lawford) and starts to pay less attention to her dancing.
