Thursdays in August means Screen on the Green!
A sublime concoction of music, dance, and artistry, An American in Paris tells the story of a penniless expatriate painter (Gene Kelly) and his romance with the beautiful Lise (Leslie Caron). The film’s climactic 17-minute ballet sequence features Impressionist set designs inspired by the work of numerous iconic French artists, including Renoir, Rousseau, and Toulouse-Lautrec. 1951, Rated PG, 115 min.
Film screenings for Screen on the Green start at sundown (roughly 8:00 p.m.) on Thursdays in August at the Botanical Garden Lawn in Balboa Park.
