Singin’ In The Rain

£8.00

Hollywood’s troubled transition from silent to talking pictures at the end of the 1920s provided the inspiration for perhaps the greatest of movie musicals. “The most enduring film musical to have come out of Hollywood. In all these years not a frame of it has dated; it still retains all its freshness and sparkle.” Clive Hirschhorn, Gene Kelly: A Biography, 1984 To follow the acclaim for An American in Paris, which won him the 1951 Oscar for best picture, songwriter-turned-producer Arthur Freed charged screenwriters Betty Comden and Adolph Green with writing a musical based around some of his own most popular early songs. The result was a nostalgic tribute to the Hollywood of a bygone era starring Gene Kelly as Don Lockwood, the swashbuckling silent star at a film studio grappling with the coming of sound. From the iconic scene in which Lockwood, smitten with young actress Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds), dances home during a downpour singing the title song, to the extended ballet sequence featuring Cyd Charisse in a parody of the gangster film, Singin’ in the Rain represents the musical genre at its most energetic and ambitious.

Liverpool Pride Presents Kiki

Mon 4 September @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Picturehouse at FACT, 88 Wood St
Liverpool, Merseyside L14DQ United Kingdom

£7.50

Plays as part of Liverpool Pride's International Love Season. Director: Sara Jordenö. USA/Sweden 2016. 96 mins. Twenty-five years after Jenny Livingston’s seminal documentary Paris Is Burning, which shone a light on ’80s Harlem’s ballroom scene, this explosive and uplifting new documentary reveals one of the subculture’s contemporary descendants: the Kiki scene. Part activist movement, part artistic milieu, the Kiki community is a site of radical self-expression for young queer people of colour in New York City, whose ballroom competitions and surrogate queer families provide both creative platforms and a source of succour for individuals facing multiple forms of marginalisation. Shot over four years, the film follows seven members of the community through the difficulties of illness, homelessness and everyday discrimination, as well as the joys of spectacle, camaraderie and personal affirmation. The film will be preceded by a short film in conjunction with Random Acts. En Vogue Dance icons Derrick Xtravaganza & Grandfather Hector Xtravaganza star in director Jenn Nkiru’s homage to one of NYC's last subcultures: voguing and ballroom.   Picturehouse at FACT members can get their tickets for just £5.50.

Here at Picturehouse at FACT we're celebrating one of cinema’s most prolific – and brutal – filmmakers, Rainer Werner Fassbinder. A bitter young girl brings her emotionally estranged parents together at their country house for a weekend full of shocking revelations. Artfully shot, with a nosy, circling camera often revealing as much as Fassbinder’s script, 'Chinese Roulette' is a vicious indictment of victimhood, martyrdom and the games people will play in order to destroy one other.

Here at Picturehouse at FACT we are celebrating the work of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, one of cinema’s most prolific – and brutal – filmmakers. After winning the lottery, a naive working-class carnival entertainer (Fassbinder in one of his most raw and astonishing performances) embarks down a tragic path as he searches for love and social betterment within an avaricious bourgeois clique of Munich’s gay community. The final scene of this biting social commentary is perhaps the most shocking in all of Fassbinder’s films. Picturehouse at FACT members can see this film for £9.60.

Starring: Elvis Presley, Judy Tyler, Mickey Shaughnessy, Vaughn Taylor. USA 1957. 95 mins. One of the best of Elvis Presley's pre-Army films, Jailhouse Rock offers us the sensual, ‘dangerous’ Elvis that won the hearts of the kids and earned the animosity of their elders. Presley plays Vince Everett, a young buck who accidentally kills a man while protecting the honour of a woman. He is thrown into prison, and following his performance in the prison show, where ol' swivel-hips score a hit, he decides to stay in showbiz after his release. He sets up his own record company but success goes to his head, and he is deserted by his flunkeys and hangers-on. Everett learns the value of friendship and slowly rebuilds his reputation and career. Seldom would Elvis be so well showcased in the future.
