Feeling the itch to travel but don't want to get on an airplane? We've got the perfect solution for you! Spend a couple hours dancing through the City of Lights with Gene Kelly (our favourite!), Leslie Caron, and some pretty iconic music from George and Ira Gershwin! Kelly plays former WWII GI Jerry Mulligan, an American expatriate in Paris trying to make a living as an artist. He falls in love with a shop girl named Lise (Caron), who unbeknownst to him is already engaged but isn't altogether happy about her impending nuptials. Naturally, a comedy of errors and a love triangle ensue. Vincente Minnelli's classic musical won seven Academy Awards and features show-stopping choreography by Gene Kelly, including a 17-minute ballet routine that cost nearly half a million dollars to produce! Don't miss this shot to see Paris in all of its Technicolor glory on the big screen! It's almost as good as being there in person!
