See these films: Summer Stock + Cover Girl + Xanadu @ the Brattle

The days of winter brighten with the deft footwork and irrepressible geniality of Gene Kelly. Tomorrow, the Brattle Theatre's retrospective of his films offers a triple dose of terpsichorean therapy. In Charles Walter's Summer Stock (1950; 12:30 + 5 pm) he plays the head of a theatrical troupe who charms a small-town girl played by Judy Garland. It's paired with Charles Vidor's Cover Girl (1944; 2:45 + 7:15 pm), where Kelly plays a hoofer whose partner (Rita Hayworth) hits the big time. And stick around for Kelly's last film, Xanadu (1980; 9:30 pm), in which he's paired with Olivia Newton-John!

Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge :: Saturday, December 29 :: Double feature $12; $10 students; for Xanadu $9.75; $7.75 students :: 617.876.6837 or
