Strand Arts Centre presents the classic Gene Kelly musical An American in Paris (1951), screening as part of the Cinema Unbound - The World of Powell & Pressburger series.

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) is an American ex-GI who stays in post-war Paris to become a painter, and falls for the gamine charms of Lise Bouvier (Leslie Caron). However, his paintings come to the attention of Milo Roberts, a rich American heiress, who is interested in more than just art.

Programmed as part of a season celebrating the work – and influence – of film-makers Powell and Pressburger.

With support of the BFI Film Audience Network, awarding funds from the National Lottery in order to bring this project to more audiences across the UK.
