It's Always Fair Weather
Tuesday, September 19
“It’s Always Fair Weather is an excellent showcase for dancing, marked by innovative, impressionistic routines.”—AV Club
“This wonderfully sardonic musical failed to find much critical approval or public acclaim on its original release. Now, in these more cynical times, we can appreciate this masterwork for what it is: a genuinely clever satire.”—Tony Sloman, Radio Times
FREE SCREENING FOR MEMBERS
Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse and Dan Daily are in top form and star in this classic musical comedy about three fun-loving army buddies who meet in New York City ten years after their discharge—only to discover that each has compromised on his dreams and that their reunion is being broadcast as a national television special. Academy Award nominations for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay and Best Score.
It's Always Fair Weather is a vibrant, colorful, and energetic film, featuring dazzling choreography and catchy tunes. It was not a commercial success at the time of its release, but has since become a cult classic and a favorite of musical fans.
