The greatest musical ever made? Many would vote for this exuberant valentine to the days when movies learned to talk. Gene Kelly plays a matinee idol torn between his love for the unknown but talented Debbie Reynolds and the girl who “ceen’t stand it”—better left silent film star Jean Hagen. Propelled by a crackling script and sparkling song-and-dance routines, this is Hollywood at its finest.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
