Singin’ In The Rain (U) showing 12th-13th December
A classic musical about movies transition from silent films to sound with dancer extraordinaire Gene Kelly.

Finally, on 21st December current owner of The Electric, Tom Lawes, will be hosting a special talk about the history of the cinema as well as a screening of archive footage that hasn’t been seen in public many years? (hmmm…i’ve heard rumours about the ‘archive footage’ kept in the basement… ;)  ) For more information, for times etc please see the Electric website.
