Monthly series: 1st Friday of every month. Free and open to public.
Gene Kelly. Suave beyond reason, elegant, moves like water. But I’ll bet you didn’t know (I sure didn’t) he was a director, too. Not some hoofer putting on airs, no, he went and made a classic: On The Town. 1949. Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Betty Garrett, and Ann Miller. Watching these four act together is treat enough. Add in spectacular dance numbers (choreography by the ubiquitous Kelly, of course!), and fabulous cinematography and you have a frothy New York egg cream of a flick. Kelly insisted on filming on location in New York City, a rather unusual practice at the time.
Three sailors have twenty four hours of shore leave in New York and want to see and do everything. Of course, they immediately collide with some formidable dames, including Miss Turnstiles herself. New York, New York, it’s a hell of a town. The Bronx is up and the Battery's down. Come on out and join us in taking in this delightful cinematic treat.
Oh, did we mention, it’s FREE?
Friday, June 2, 7:30 PM at the Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library.
