Win a pair of tickets to watch a Vincente Minnelli movie at the BFI!

Lena Weber

Don’t miss the BFI’s major survey of  director Vincente Minnelli’s bold excursions in musical, melodrama and comedy. Titles  in April range from The Bad and The Beautiful to An American in Paris.

Minnelli’s initial training in stage management and costume design permeates all of his films from the lighting to the stylistic devices. He has been described as “A brilliant director of musicals who brought a unity of song and drama to the screen.” William R. Meyer (The Film Buff’s Catalog, 1978).

Part two in May shifts to the darker dramas Minnelli created in the latter part of his career including  the explosive Some Came Running with Frank Sinatra and Shirley MacLaine.

Two win a pair of tickets to watch a Minelli movie of your choice at the BFI Southbank this April or May email quoting ‘Minnelli’ in the subject line.  The winner will be drawn at random at midday on Monday 2 April 2012. Tickets are subject to availability, there is no cash alternative. Good luck!
