The incomparable, perfect, never-bettered musical to beat all musicals and a very fitting opener to our outdoor screenings at Tinside. Where better to watch this spoof of the turmoil that afflicted the movie industry in the late 1920s than in Plymouth’s art Deco Lido. When two silent movie stars, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont, latest movie is made into a musical a chorus girl is brought in to dub Lina's speaking and singing….and the rest is cinema history. Wonderful.

Dir. Stanley Donen, Gene Kelley, US, 1952, 103 mins. Cast. Gene Kelley, Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Jean Hagen.
