Free movie – Singin’ in the rain

Hawkesbury Library Service will screen ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ on Thursday, 28 July at 10am and again at 6pm, in association with National Film and Sound Archive.

So, if you can’t make it to the current stage production of this famous musical in Sydney, come along and see the 1952 movie starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds. It offers a light hearted depiction of Hollywood in the late 1920s, with the three stars portraying performers caught up in the transition from silent films to ‘talkies’.

The Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Kim Ford said the longevity of these free movies at the library shows just how popular they are.

“Council has been running these free movie events since 2013 at Hawkesbury Central Library and they continue to attract people coming along to enjoy watching films,” Mayor Ford said.

“Sometimes it is classic Australian movies, sometimes great kids’ movies; there has always been a lot of variety to what is screened on the last Thursday of each month.

“It’s always fun to meet people from the local community as well as friends and family who want to catch up on films in the comfortable environment of your local library,” he added.

“I suggest you book it in with your friends and make it a great time to catch with them too.”

The movie will be shown in the Tebbutt Room, Hawkesbury Central Library, Deerubbin Centre, 300 George Street Windsor and runs for 103 minutes. Refreshments will be available before the screenings and everyone is welcome to bring along snacks and drinks to enjoy during the film.

Bookings are essential, call 4560 4460 or email programs@hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au with your name(s), contact number and which session you would like to attend. This film has a classified rating of G but children under the age of 15 must still be accompanied by an adult. Suitability for viewing is at the discretion of the parent/carer.

Free Movies @ Your Library events are held on the last Thursday of each month, except for January.
