Singing in the Rain in Venice

Our friend Elisa invited us to join her at the cinema today to see an old American musical: “Singing in the Rain” with Gene Kelley, Debbie Reynolds, and Donald O’Connor. This is one of my favorite classic films, and I had to force myself not to sing along.

Mama and I are fascinated with how different and hidden shop signs are here. The movie theater today was a great example of this. The photo on the left is Mama sitting outside, waiting for the show to start. We walked right past it at first! The bottom right is what the small theater looks like on the inside. About two dozen people came for today’s showing, including another American expat friend of Elisa’s, who we enjoyed getting to know as well.

The top right photo is from a lovely bakery we visited today. There was no food for sale at the movies, but we couldn’t help but share this beautiful spread of tiny cakes with you!

  1. Where is that hidden cinema? Will you and Jude get to look at the previous Cinema Teatro Italia (in Cannaregio) which is now a supermarket? It sounds quite splendid inside.

    From TripAdvisor: “De Spar supermarket, in a beautiful old Theatre in the Cannaregio area of the City. Well worth a visit, even if you don’t need to buy any groceries. Beautiful entrance and double staircase lobby guides you through to the supermarket, where you look up to see a beautifully painted ceiling. Good selection of produce. If you forget to take a shopping bag, you can pick up a lovely cotton one there for €1.50. Very useful afterwards for your suncream and sunnies when walking around. After purchasing your groceries, your scan your bar coded receipt to exit through plus crimson velvet curtains.”
