“Singin’ in the Rain,” an American musical classic starring Gene Kelly, will be shown at 7 p.m., Feb. 24, at the John & Nancy Hughes Theater in the Gorton Community Center in Lake Forest.

The one-night show is part of film classics series offered by Gordon. Tickets are only $5 and are available in advance at

The film is known as one of the greatest and most successful musicals ever filmed. It is filled with memorable songs and Gene Kelly’s fabulous song-and-dance performed in the rain.

“We are actively  working to bring you current, time-loved films to the John & Nancy Hughes Theater,” said Jamie Hall, Gorton film director.

On the heels of the recent passing of Debbie Reynolds and with La La Land’s success, theater officials say “it’s a great time” to see Singing in the Rain on the big screen.

Gorton Community Center is a privately-funded, non-profit organization which operates in partnership with volunteers and the City of Lake Forest to enrich the lives of its residents through cultural arts, education and charitable service.
