Pittsburgh native Gene Kelly shines in this classic 1952 movie musical that also made Debbie Reynolds a star.
The film takes a comical look at Hollywood circa 1927, when silent films were being replaced by talkies. Kelly portrays screen heartthrob Don Lockwood who, with his regular co-star Lina Lamont (Jean Hagan) try to make the transition. But when their first sound picture flops, he is joined by his pal Cosmo Brown (Donald O’Connor) and girlfriend Kathy Seldon (Reynolds) in attempting to refashion it as a musical — while keeping it a secret from the narcissistic Lina.
One of the film’s most iconic scenes involves Kelly singing the title song (which first debuted in 1929) while dancing in the middle of a downpour.
Admission is free. Times given are approximations; the film will begin at dusk. Presented by the City of Pittsburgh Department of Parks and Recreation (a.k.a. CitiParks) and sponsored by Dollar Bank.
