Classic Movie Nights: American in Paris
Published July 23, 2013
I’ve always been something of a movie buff. Classic American cinema holds a special place in my heart, especially when I can head to the beautifully restored Majestic Theater on Wednesday evenings and escape into the world of cinema magic for a few hours.
Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? Tickets are just six dollars, too.
Founding Executive Director of the Majestic Theater (and film buff) Jeffrey Gabel introduces each film in his signature style, so you’ll come away with a deeper appreciation for their cultural and aesthetic significance while enjoying the storytelling.
This week’s film is American in Paris (1951), starring Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron, Oscar Levan, Georges Guétary and Nina Foch. Featuring the music and lyrics of George and Ira Gershwin, it tells the story of three American expatriates trying to survive the arts scene in post-war Paris and find love. There’s comedy, misunderstandings — and dancing!
Popcorn, refreshments, beer, and wine are available for purchase at each showing.
