Singin’ in the Rain is universally renowned as one of the greatest musicals of all time. In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked it as the fifth greatest film ever made. 2017 marks the 65th anniversary of the film’s release in 1952 and to commemorate the event, Fathom Events and TCM’s Big Screen Classic series have brought it back to theaters for two days only. Not only do audiences get to take in a pure classic, but they also get to pay a final respect to the late great Debbie Reynolds, whose career was launched thanks to the film. I have attended and reviewed many of the screenings from Fathom and TCM and this one had the largest crowd by far. The show was sold out; my family and I sat in the very top row, and the 7:00pm show was sold out by 1:30 in the afternoon.
Whether you want to have a fun night out, pay tribute to fallen legend Debbie Reynolds, or simply relive one of the greatest musicals ever made, Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies have a special event for you. Coming to theaters soon, the 65th Anniversary of Singin’ in the Rain.
Actress Debbie Reynolds, mother of the late Carrie Fisher, died today after suffering a stroke, according to TMZ, who learned the news from Reynolds’ son Todd Fisher. She was 84.
TMZ reports that Todd Fisher and his mother were at his Beverly Hills home this afternoon making funeral arrangements for his sister when Reynolds fell ill and was taken to the hospital.
Reynolds’ death comes just one day after the passing of her daughter, Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, who died yesterday at 60 years old. While on a flight from London to Los Angeles on December 23, 2016, Fisher had gone into cardiac arrest and reportedly stopped breathing, and had been in the hospital ICU in the days before her death.
