In the wake of the glorious success of last month’s nationwide theater screenings of Singin’ in the Rain (1952), NCM Fathom, Turner Classic Movies, and Warner Bros. have teamed up once again to bring the movie back to theaters for an encore–and on the eve of star Gene Kelly’s 100th birthday, no less!
From the press release:
Back by popular demand, Singin’ in the Rain is returning to movie theaters for one final showing on August 22nd at 7:00 PM (local time)–just in time to catch this special event with the family before school is back in session!
NCM Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies, and Warner Bros. are excited to bring the “Greatest Musical of All-Time” back to movie theaters for one final showing on August 22nd. Don’t miss your last chance to see this American classic back on the big screen!
The event begins with a Turner Classic Movies original production featuring TCM host Robert Osborne in an exclusive, specially-produced interview with star Debbie Reynolds. In this interview, audiences are taken behind the scenes of one of the greatest musicals of all time as Ms. Reynolds shares memories of working with the late great Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor and more.
Immediately following these exclusive behind-the-scenes extras, be carried away by the songs, story, and romance of one of the greatest musicals of all time–Singin’ in the Rain–as it graces the silver screen for one night only, fully re-mastered and more beautiful than ever before! Tickets for the first event went quickly, with many sold-out theaters across the country. Tickets for the encore are on sale NOW, so get them soon before they’re gone.
True Classics’ own Sarah attended the screening in Atlanta last month, and she can tell you that it’s an experience you don’t want to miss. You can find participating theaters near you and purchase tickets at the Fathom website.
You could win a pair of tickets right now, from the gang here at True Classics, courtesy of NCM Fathom!
The rules are simple: just send us an email at trueclassicsblog (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject “I want Singin’ tickets!” and you’ll be entered into a random drawing to win a pair of tickets for the theater of your choice in your area.
Easy enough, right? We have three sets of tickets to give away, and we’re accepting entries until Monday, August 13th, at 7PM CST. Winners will be notified by email Monday evening.
Are you excited for another chance to see Singin’ in all its big-screen glory?

Oh yes Brandie, definitely excited to hear this, though will be on a trip west to Chicago and Cleveland from Aug 19 to 23. But who knows, I may actually be able to see it during that stay. In any case it’s the most celebrated musical of all-time, and the blu-ray recently arrived at my doorstep. It certainly well deserves the platforming!

Am going to see “Singin’ in the Rain” on Wednesday. Have recruited several reluctant members of my family to come with, but I know they’ll end up loving it. Can’t wait!!
