   The Film Society of the Lincoln Center is currently presenting a great Gene Kelly retrospective. Invitation to the Dance: Gene Kelly at 100, features 23 of the innovative dancer’s films through July 26th. On Friday, July 20th, Kelly’s widow, film historian Patricia Ward Kelly, takes a behind-the-scenes  in-person intimate portrait of the man who helped create some of the most memorable scenes in film history.

   Among the cinema presented: The Three Musketeers, On the Town, An American in Paris, Anchor’s Aweigh, For Me and My Gal, Summer Stock, Les Girls, The Pirate, It’s Always Fair WeatherTake Me Out to the BallgameInherit the WindBrigadoon, What a Way to Go, and Xanadu. Due to a prior contractual obligation, Singin’ in the Rain was not available for this fest. However, when you buy a double feature package, it will automatically enter you for a chance to win an advanced copy of Warner Home Video’s new Blu-ray edition of this iconic musical.
