‘Singin in the Rain’ kicks off TCM Big Screen Classics this weekend, Debbie Reynolds’ breakout role

To kick off the yearlong TCM Big Screen Classics series, Singin’ in the Rain is back on the big screen for two days only – giving audiences a chance to see Debbie Reynolds in her breakout role.

Reynolds, Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Jean Hagen, Cyd Charisse and Rita Moreno star in the unforgettable musical comedy, directed by Kelly and Stanley Donen. Celebrating its 65th anniversary in 2017, but still as fresh and delightful as the day it was released, Singin’ in the Rain is a movie that’s even more dazzling and grin-inducing than ever. Moviegoers will also experience specially-produced commentary from Turner Classic Movies (TCM) host Ben Mankiewicz before and after the feature.

Fathom Events is hosting the event as cinemas: Sunday, January 15, 2017; 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (local time)
Wednesday, January 18, 2017; 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (local time)

Tickets for “Singin’ in the Rain 65th Anniversary” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 700 select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN).

UP NEXT FOR TCM BIG SCREEN CLASSICS & FATHOM EVENTS:

TCM Big Screen Classics: An Affair to Remember 60th Anniversary (1957) Sunday, February 12, and Wednesday, February 15

The perfect Valentine’s Day event for romantics and movie-lovers alike, this CinemaScope classic remains as much a tearjerker today as it was 60 years ago, when its misty-eyed tale was first released. Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr star as the two lovers who meet by chance on a trans-Atlantic voyage and fall in love despite their existing relationships. When they agree to meet six months later atop the Empire State Building, they cannot foresee the tragic circumstances that will test the limits of their devotion – and of the tear ducts of millions of moviegoers who have fallen in love with this swooning story of love, fate and circumstance.

TCM Big Screen Classics: All About Eve (1950) Sunday, March 5, and Wednesday, March 8

Backstage backstabbing and treachery has never been as deliciously fun or as intensely dramatic as it is in All About Eve – which is tied only with Titanic for the most Academy Award® nominations for a single film. Director Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s black-and-white masterpiece also stars a young Marilyn Monroe in one of her first important roles. With a record-breaking four nominations in female acting categories (Bette Davis and Anne Baxter as Best Actress and Celeste Holm and Thelma Ritter as Best Supporting Actress), it remains one of the most riveting dramas ever made, a movie often imitated but never duplicated.

TCM Big Screen Classics: North By Northwest (1959) Sunday, April 2, and Wednesday, April 5

From its dazzling opening credits sequence by Saul Bass, set to a wild scherzo by Bernard Hermann, to its cliffhanging finale atop Mount Rushmore, director Alfred Hitchcock’s cross-country adventure offers non-stop thrills. It stars Cary Grant as Roger O. Thornhill, a man wrongly accused of murder, who hops on to a train … and into the lap of Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint). All the while, he’s pursued by the sinister Philip Vandamm (James Mason), who is convinced that Thornhill is a spy. He’s not – but he’s about to become one. Few films are as effortlessly delightful as Hitchcock’s grandest adventure ever.
