Friday, August 12, 2011, 7:00 p.m.

Dirs. Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen. 1949, 98 mins.

Stanley Donen and Gene Kelly co-directed this gloriously free-form adaptation of Betty Comden and Adolph Green’s 1944 Broadway show, with music by Leonard Bernstein. Sinatra, Kelly, and Jules Munshin are a trio of sailors who spend their shore leave cavorting around New York City. This energetic musical includes location photography and opens with the show-stopping number “New York, New York."
