Singin' in the Rain (1952)
The Gft in Glasgow has launched a new monthly event called Movie Memories aimed at making cinema accessible to people with dementia. The project, which is funded by the Life Changes Trust and supported by Glasgow Museums, seeks to tackle the isolation that many people in the early and middle stages of the disease face.
A trial run last year featured Singin' In The Rain and this year the project restarted with Whisky Galore. The screenings are accompanied by special materials to help attendees remember the films and the times they are set in. Carers are welcome, the lighting level is raised to make it safer to move around, and the sound is adjusted to help attendees with hearing difficulties.
"A diagnosis of dementia should not ostracise people and so there is a social duty to make sure people still have the choice to engage,

Rocking a curly brunette wig, the 33-year-old actor lip synched and danced to a cover of the late Whitney Houston's "I'm Every Woman." The Los Angeles native didn't hold anything back, strutting his stuff across the stage and at one point pulling off a back flip.
An eyewitness tells Et that the drag show featured a selection of queens from Rupaul's Drag Race and a game called "Wig in a Box," where Garfield and three other members from the audience were asked to come on stage to compete against each other. They were each given a wig to represent an iconic
To celebrate Mother's Day we're taking a look at our 5 favourite mother/daughter acting duos who've made a name for themselves in Hollywood.
Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis
Not only are these two mother and daughter but they've had some of the most iconic female roles in horror movie history. Janet Leigh was a bonafide scream queen from the late 1950's up until the early 1980's. She starred in Touch of Evil, The Fog, and of course Psycho for which she received an Oscar nomination. Jamie Lee Curtis first gained mainstream attention with her portrayal of Laurie in John Carpenter's Halloween which sparked a multi-decade franchise. She has since solidified herself among Hollywood greats with Freaky Friday, True Lies, and A Fish Called Wanda.
Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher
Here's another pairing with
When Debbie Reynolds passed away in December 2016 we lost Singin’ in the Rain’s last surviving star. Reynolds was just 18 when she was cast as ingenue Kathy Selden in the classic 1952 musical about three actors — silent film star Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly), his pal Cosmo (Donald O’Connor) and Selden (Reynolds) — making the transition to sound pictures.
Reynolds could sing, however she wasn’t a trained dancer, which meant the film’s choreographer, star and perfectionist Kelly pushed her so hard that by the end of shooting the famous “Good Morning” dance routine her feet were bleeding.
Her efforts paid off as she shines brightly alongside the masterful Kelly and O’Connor. Some 50 years later Reynolds said, “Singin
The Film Fest in the City films will include Singin' In The Rain, Clueless and Labyrinth, which will screen in St Andrew Square Garden. A dress-up party for Disney animation Beauty And The Beast, a sing-along Trolls and "dance-alongs" for Mamma Mia! and Dirty Dancing will also feature.
Critically-acclaimed blockbusters including Rogue One: A Stars Wars Story, Kubo and The Two Strings and Eiff 2016 Audience Award Winner Hunt For The Wilderpeople will also join the line-up.
Artistic director Mark Adams said: “We’re thrilled to be rolling out the green carpet for the sixth annual Film Fest in the City. Whether you want to dance and sing-along to a cult classic or gather the family to watch a film under the stars,
From the currently playing Their Finest to the likes of Bowfinger and Boogie Nights, we salute the movies about making movies...
If you haven't caught up yet, Their Finest is currently playing in UK cinemas and it's a gorgeous little love letter to perseverance through storytelling, set against the backdrop of a film production office at the British Ministry of Information during the Second World War. Based on Lissa Evans' novel, Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy play characters whose access to the film industry has been contingent on the global crisis that takes other young men away from such trifling matters, and it's a real joy to watch.
Among other things, the film got us thinking about other films about making films. We're not talking about documentaries, even though Hearts Of Darkness, the documentary about the making of Apocalypse Now, may be the greatest film about
With the month of May now upon us, we flip over to a new and diverse list of movies and special features screening in our Events calendar. Whether you are a fan of the movie classics or a fan of Mozart - we have something for everybody!

It's not hyperbole to say that Demme was arguably the greatest concert filmmaker ever – look at the number of them that he made, the range of artists he chronicled
Movies about making movies may just be my favourite kind. It's a meta Inception-esque sub-genre that has provided us with some of cinema's greatest and most memorable moments. Think Singin' In the Rain, Mulholland Drive, 8 1/2, Hail, Caesar!, Hugo and even Tropic Thunder. There's so much potential in the making of the movies - from the creative process through to shooting, post-production and release, there's high stakes, high tension and high drama. With so much on the line for so many people, clashes and chaos are bound to ensue. Their Finest follows this format except there's even more on the line than usual - set during WWII, its characters also have the morale of the entire nation during the darkest of times to consider.

"I think it's important that you grieve and feel it," he said. "No matter if you're famous or not, I think having an event and having movies and pictures and feeling that is a good thing. It's part of the process of grieving."
"There's a freeing sense to all of that," he continued. "At the same time, it's obviously a huge loss and they were my girls."
Todd reflected on the heartbreaking moment when Carrie died after going into cardiac arrest on a plane
The 'Star Wars' actress and her mother passed away within days of one another in December, and though they were laid to rest in a private funeral service, fans will now get their chance to pay their last respects on March 25.
According to TMZ, the memorial will be held at a 1,200-seat theater at Forest Lawn cemetery, where the pair are buried, and will include a musical tribute from Carrie's close friend James Blunt.
While the 'You're Beautiful' singer won't be performing, a new song he's written in honour of his late pal will be debuted as a photo montage is broadcast, Carrie's brother Todd told the website.
Also planned for the service is a dance tribute from the Debbie Reynolds dance school, and a musical
