|Scene from My Fair Lady|
There's a good chance that if you enjoy reading about Academy Awards news and history, you're just as interested in seeing the films on the big screen. Well, there's good news for those who are fans of the 1964 musical My Fair Lady, directed by George Cuckor and starring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle and Rex Harrison as Henry Higgins. Starting next week and running into November, you can have the opportunity to see the film on the big screen in select theaters with a new, fully restored version.
If you are a fan of the musical that gave us such standards as "I've Grown Accustomed to Your Face" and "Why Can't the English Teach Their Children How to Speak?," then I'm sure you are already aware of this special event. While technically last year was the film's 50th anniversary, this year marks the first time that the film will be released on Blu-Ray on October 27.
So, if you're interested in going, the film is playing throughout the United States starting on October 18. You can go to My Fair Lady's website to learn more about where you can see it as well as times and ticket pricing. While showings start on October 18, there are various dates that have been added and run through November 4. So, make sure to set some time aside on your calendar for this wonderful event. It definitely will be fun to see Doolittle and Higgins looking for their slippers on the big screen as well as a chance to see one of the best musicals in film history.
