Library revives musicals for October’s Movie Matinees
ONEIDA — For fans of lush Hollywood musical films, Oneida Public Library is showing on its wide screen two films directed by Vincente Minnelli: “An American in Paris” on Monday, Oct. 15, at 1 p.m.; and “Meet Me in St. Louis” on Monday, Oct. 29, at 1 p.m.
“An American in Paris” boasts Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron in dance numbers choreographed by Kelly himself to the music of George Gershwin. The 1951 film’s climax is the most complex dance scene concocted in Hollywood: a 15-minute ballet.
Judy Garland is at her best in Minnelli’s “Meet Me in St. Louis,” which features Margaret O’Brien and Mary Astor. The 1944 original musical follows the ups and downs of a St. Louis family on special occasions in the course of a year leading to the finale at the 1903 World’s Fair. The film includes the original performances by Garland of “The Trolley Song” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
All movie showings at the OPL, along with light refreshments, are free and open to the public. For more information, stop by the Oneida Library, 220 Broad St., or call 315-363-3050.
