Sept. 20 & 23
If you missed your chance to see the stage production of An American in Paris when it came through Pittsburgh last year, The Rangos Giant Cinema is thrilled to offer you a second chance to experience this smashing show, this time on the biggest screen in the city! The Rangos will present An American in Paris – The Musical Sept. 20 & 23.
This breathtakingly beautiful Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, inspired by the Oscar-winning MGM film, tells the impassioned story of discovering love in the “City of Light.” It features the gorgeous music and lyrics of George and Ira Gershwin, stunning set and costume designs, and show-stopping choreography.
The story focuses on an American GI’s chance encounter with a beautiful, young dancer. Paris serves as the backdrop for a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war. Experience what The Wall Street Journal describes as an “old-fashioned, big-hearted spare-no-expense Broadway romance,” on a Certified Giant Screen!
By virtue of the technology, colorful and comfortable architecture, and atmosphere of the new cinema, The Rangos is designed to be a destination that provides immersive and exciting experiences to our guests. After your stay, we want you to feel like you have visited the "Mother of all Theaters," as a member of our focus group described it.
The new cinema system will include two industry-leading Christie® laser-illuminated 4K laser digital projectors, which will dazzle you with bright, ultra-sharp images, and incredibly vivid colors. Coupled with a premium Dolby Atmos® multichannel surround sound system – a first for institutional giant screen theaters, which uses a huge array of front, back, side and overhead speakers – you will be completely immersed in the action.
In addition to a continued focus on the awe-inspiring mission-centric documentaries that the Rangos Theater has become known for over the past 26 years, this new technology will provide extensive new capabilities and significant opportunities for you to enjoy a broad range of dynamic content. From Hollywood feature films, film festivals, cult and classic films, to educational and event films, 3D experiences, and extreme special effects, look for something new, exciting, and unique every month.
