Aug 29 @ 7:00 pm – Aug 29 @ 9:00 pm

Known for her cool sex appeal, Cyd Charisse is one of the premier dancing stars of the ‘40s and’ 50s…but she starts this musical version of Ninotchka as an even cooler Soviet spy who gradually warms up to Astaire’s elegant wooing and French champagne. Their chemistry sizzles, turning into an explosion of talent, sophistication and glamour in Astaire’s last great musical role. Not Rated.
