February's Odeum Classic Films installment features the musical Singin' In The Rain!

Taking place during the rise of the "talkies", we meet Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) who have risen to stardom during the silent-film era of Hollywood. Beautiful, charismatic and influential, the two combine to make a great on-screen pair. The introduction of talking pictures poses a threat to the powerful duo, however, when it is discovered by audiences that Lina has an excruciatingly shrill voice. Enter young studio singer Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds), a woman who lacks the stardom of Ms. Lamont but possesses the beautiful voice of which Lina is in dire need. Can Don and Lina find a solution to Lina's laughably annoying voice to salvage their careers?

About Odeum Classic Films:
Starting in 1926 and for over 60 years, The Greenwich Theater (now the Greenwich Odeum) screened thousands of films. With the Odeum Classic Films series, only the very best of these movies return to the big screen! Curated by Steven Feinberg, Executive Director the Rhode Island Film & TV Office, the series will run from September 2018 to August 2019 and each month will feature at least one Odeum Classic Film (or double feature or marathon). Relive the experience of seeing these classics on the big screen, with a theater full of other lovers of great cinema. Steven Feinberg will introduce each film and share a few words about what makes each of these films a Classic. The Odeum Classic Films series will contain well known classics as well as incredible films that rarely reach large screens - we hope to see you here!
