Singin’ in the Rain + Magic Mike XXL
Saturday, April 17, 6:30 p.m.
Queens Drive-In at NYSCI, 47-01 111 Street, Corona, New York 11368
Two exemplars of the Hollywood musical from different eras, from the toe-tapping to the bump-and-grinding.
Singin’ in the Rain
Dirs. Stanley Donen, Gene Kelly. U.S., 1952, 103 mins. With Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Jean Hagen, Rita Moreno. Donen and Kelly's satirical look at Hollywood on the cusp of the sound era is simply the most joyous experience one could ever have going to the movies. With its super-saturated colors, nonstop belly laughs, playlist of repurposed classic songs, and dazzling displays of fabulous footwork—including O'Connor’s show-stopping "Make 'em Laugh," Kelly's iconic titular tune, and the eye-popping "Broadway Melody" fantasy ballet—Singin’ in the Rain is a blast. Rated: G
Magic Mike XXL
Dir. Gregory Jacobs. U.S., 2015, 115 mins. With Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash, Gabriel Iglesias, Amber Heard, Donald Glover, Jada Pinkett Smith, Elizabeth Banks. Picking up three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, Magic Mike XXL finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, sharing the spotlight with legendary headliner Magic Mike. The guys learn some new moves and shake off the past on the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and meet new friends. Rated: R
