There are some activities that pair perfectly with a rainy day: drinking cocoa, reading a book, and watching old movies. There’s just something about black and white and crackly sound quality that feels comforting and cozy. So if you’re looking for a movie to watch the next time it rains, here are three great options.
Singin’ in the Rain
A bit of an obvious choice? Maybe. But there’s a reason why this 1952 classic still stands up today, holding a solid 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Starring the infinitely charming Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, Singin’ in the Rain tells the story of the film industry transitioning from silent films to “talkies”. It’s funny and clever and timeless.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Starring Audrey Hepburn at her prime, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a perfect rainy day choice. Seriously, who wouldn’t fall in love with Holly Golightly, especially after seeing how her dedication to her beloved cat leads her to run around getting soaked in the streets of Manhattan?
One of Alfred Hitchcock’s famous thrillers, Foreign Correspondent tells the story of an American crime reporter stumbling upon a spy ring in Europe before World War II. It’s moody and chilling, perfect to watch with a cup of something steamy.
