Starring Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron, Oscar Levant
On July 18th, the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas is proud to present Vincente Minnelli’s musical smash An American in Paris. Set to the music of George and Ira Gershwin, the film tells the story of Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly), a down on his luck American painter living in Paris who falls for a young French girl (Leslie Caron) already engaged to a cabaret singer. Shot in gorgeous Technicolor, the film is best remembered for its 17 minute ballet climax, set to the music of Gershwin’s “An American in Paris.”
The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won six including Best Picture.
