The Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Friday Night at the Movies selection this week is a doozy. No matter how many times you see "Singin' in the Rain," the iconic dance numbers by stars Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor and Debbie Reynolds are still a marvel to watch. The CSO provides musical accompaniment.
Why go: Patricia Ward Kelly, the widow of Gene Kelly, will hold a pre-screening conversation about the star and behind-the-scenes moments from "Singin' in the Rain."
Reconsider: You've gone this far in your life without ever having seen this MGM classic, so why upset the apple cart?
Details: 8 p.m. Friday (conversation with Patricia Ward Kelly at 7 p.m.) at Symphony Center, 220 S. Michigan Ave.; $99-$195; 312-294-3000, cso.org
