Griffin Honors Minnelli at Paramount Center

Please join us on Friday, April 20th at 6:30pm at Boston's beautifully restored Paramount Center for a very special event. Mark Griffin, the author of A Hundred or More Hidden Things: The Life and Films of Vincente Minnelli, will introduce a screening of Minnelli's beloved 1951 musical An American in Paris. Winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, the film stars Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron and boasts a superlative score by George and Ira Gershwin. "An American in Paris is one of the most imaginative musical confections turned out by Hollywood" (-Variety).

A book signing will follow the movie.

This special screening of An American in Paris is part of Paramount's film series Gotta Dance: The American Movie Musical 1929-1953, which will also include a screening of Vincente Minnelli's The Band Wagon (1953) on April 28th.

Instead of throwing in two different dials for two different time zones, Diesel introduced two rotating discs with the hour and minute markings at 9'o clock. The inner disc is the replica watches sale one that denotes the minutes and the outer one, the hours.
