Event Description

Howard Keel, Kathryn Grayson and Ann Miller star in this lively screen version of the Cole Porter stage musical based on The Taming of the Shrew.

DIGITAL 3D PRESENTATION!

Making use of all the resources and expertise of MGM’s legendary musical production unit, Kiss Me Kate is an enormously entertaining adaptation of Cole Porter’s hit Broadway show based on The Taming of the Shrew, starring Howard Keel and Kathryn Grayson as a bickering, separated theatre couple appearing in a musical stage version of Shrew who play out their roles as Petruchio and Kate offstage as well as on. Directed with gusto by studio stalwart George Sidney, featuring sharp, witty dialogue, an appealing cast and a host of standout production numbers — including Ann Miller’s scintillating tap dance to “Too Darn Hot” and the unforgettable “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” — this is a real gem from the glory days of the MGM musical. Kiss Me Kate also bears the distinction of being one of the first musical films to be shot in 3D, and we are pleased to offer a wonderful opportunity to experience it in this format courtesy of a new 2K digital 3D restoration from Warner Bros.
