An American in Paris

Still image from the film An American in Paris
An American painter, Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly), and his two friends struggle to find work in Paris. A wealthy heiress discovers him, but is interested in more than his art. Jerry, in turn, is in love with a French girl (Leslie Caron), whom his pianist friend also has designs on. Dazzling color and brilliant choreography frame a lovely score by George and Ira Gershwin in this highly original musical. The film that swept the Oscars® in 1951 has now been rereleased with this digital restoration. (2K DCP presentation)

See a Vincente Minneli double-feature with The Bad and the Beautiful.
