Your weekend all wet?  Try SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN

SINGIN' IN THE RAIN - Saturday 3/6 and Sunday 3/7 at the Ritz Advance tickets available here

There are two types of people in the world: 1. Those who love the classic musical extravaganza SINGIN' IN THE RAIN 2. and those who haven't got around to seeing it yet.

Hollywood's last great masterpiece of entertainment, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN is a heartwarming love story, a fabulous comedy, and a loving tribute to Hollywood history that is at once educational and hilarious.

And the songs. You cannot forget about the songs. Even the unlucky few who haven't been graced with the film know the iconic "Good Morning," "Broadway Melody," and "Make 'Em Laugh." Even more so, the title song "Singin' in the Rain" is engraved so deeply in our culture's musical heritage that I bet you're singin' it in your head as you read these words. I know I am.

The dancing sensation Gene Kelly co-directs (with musical legend Stanley Donen) and stars alongside the energetic comic genius Donald O'Connor and the beautiful and talented Debbie Reynolds in this beloved and epic, glorious motion picture.

This Saturday and Sunday March 6 and 7, we'll be having special brunch screenings of this movie in 35mm, the way the film was meant to be seen, on our biggest screen at the downtown Ritz theatre. In addition to the normal brunch menu, chef John Bullington has prepared some special delights available only at these shows!

Good Mornin' 9.99 Strata of sourdough, fresh spinach, sundried tomatoes, wild mushrooms, manchego and asiago soaked in herbed egg cream and baked and a side of strawberries

So, if this film is one of your best loved Hollywood memories and you want to relive it in all of its splendor, or if you have always been meaning to see it but just never found the right chance, come out this weekend for a wonderful early-afternoon at the movies.
