In the run up to Christmas, we thought we’d put on something special for our Relaxed Screening. An undeniable classic, this screwball musical comedy stars legendary duo Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Glamorous and enthralling, with a beautiful, foot-tapping score and lavish songs (including the gorgeous ‘Cheek to Cheek’), it will bring some sparkle to your Tuesday afternoon.

When American dancer Jerry (Astaire) comes to London to star in a show he wakes up wealthy tourist Dale (Rogers) by tap dancing in his hotel bedroom. She’s annoyed, but he’s instantly smitten, and proceeds to pursue her all over London, then to Venice…

Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO.
