An American in Paris (U)

An American in Paris

Tue 16 May


In association with Dartmouth Caring we are pleased to offer a relaxed screening of this classic film.

Jerry Mulligan, a struggling American painter in Paris, is "discovered" by an influential heiress with an interest in more than Jerry's art. Jerry in turn falls for Lise, a young French girl already engaged to a cabaret singer. Jerry jokes, sings and dances with his best friend, an acerbic would-be concert pianist, while romantic complications abound.. Starring Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron, Oscar Levant. Director Vincent Minnelli

“An American in Paris" swept the Academy Awards for 1951, with Oscars for best picture and the major technical categories: screenplay, score, cinematography, art direction, set design, and even a special Oscar for the choreography of its 18-minute closing ballet extravaganza.

Relaxed screenings mean it’s ok to move around, make noise and talk, or even sing along. We aim to create a welcoming atmosphere, with no trailers or advertisements, where people understand the needs of others and the lights are left low to make it easier.

Hang back after the film and enjoy a free hot drink and a chat.

Everyone is welcome to these screenings.
