We’re mourning the sudden passing of Hollywood royalty Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds last week.

Pay tribute to Reynolds by revisiting Singin’ in the Rain, the 1952 classic that made her a household name. The hit film —considered the best musical ever made— is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year. To mark this milestone, the film will be screened in select cinemas nationwide on January 15 and January 18, in collaboration with Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Warner Bros. The event also includes exclusive commentary from Turner Classic Movies host Bob Mankiewicz. Check out the trailer above for this event and then purchase your tickets here. Reynolds, who was an avid collector of film memorabilia, would approve.

Later this month, Turner Classic Movies remembers Reynolds with a day-long marathon of her films, including The Tender Trap, The Unsinkable Molly Brown and The Catered Affair on January 27. Visit the TCM website for the full schedule.  

Finally, Fisher and Reynolds' famously close relationship—for years they shared a Beverly Hills compound—is the subject of Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds debuting on HBO on January 7 at 8 p.m. The documentary, directed by Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens, features vintage family films and intimate details about their often tumultuous mother-daughter relationship.  

Watch the video here for a quick preview of the film, and tune in to HBO January 7.  And if you missed it, you can also catch Carrie Fisher's solo shot, Wishful Drinking, on HBO NOW and HBO GO.
