Be whisked away by the jazz, dancing and bright lights of An American in Paris, paired with a three-course menu offering a taste of France

George Gershwin’s iconic, jazz-influenced music underscores Vincente Minnelli’s Oscar-winning romantic musical comedy. Gene Kelly stars as former American GI, Jerry, struggling to find his way as a painter in post-World War II Paris. Expect dance numbers, love triangles and dreamy aesthetics in this joyous musical.

Enjoy some Gershwin tunes to get you in the mood before the film, with a 30-minute live set by Lucy-Anne Daniels.

Start your evening with a paired three-course menu celebrating the flavours of Paris in our award-winning restaurant Kino – or enjoy a light Staycation themed picnic basket in the Howard Assembly Room during the film. Simply book the menu or your picnic alongside your film tickets as you checkout.
