This event has already happened

Joe (Kelly) and Clarence (Sinatra) are two sailors on a short leave in Hollywood. Joe's all set and ready to meet up with his girl, while Clarence just hopes to find someone to spend some time with. But, when the two stumble upon a lost boy who takes them home to meet his beautiful aunt (Grayson), sparks fly and lovers cross. With a series of toe-tapping songs and dances later, we've got a good old-fashioned triangle.

Kelly and Sinatra were lifelong friends, and ANCHORS AWEIGH was their very first collaboration, so we thought it would be the perfect way to celebrate Kelly's birthday this year. Cinema Cocktails has shown you Gene Kelly dancing on roller skates, Gene Kelly dancing on trashcan lids and Gene Kelly dancing in all different types of inventive perfection, but ANCHORS AWEIGH shows you Gene Kelly in the one dance that he could never create on his own: an all-out, acrobatic dance with an animated mouse.

Cinema Cocktails is pairing this very special screening with a very special bartender who happens to share the very same birthday with Gene Kelly. Billy Hankey, the owner/proprietor and all-around cocktail genius over at KING BEE LOUNGE is crafting some of the smoothest, jazziest and freshest cocktails to come out of the Alamo bar, which will available ONLY at this screening.
